Title: Modern Art
Post by: Positive on April 15, 2011, 05:19:10 pm
Although I am basically a ship model builder, I have just produced my first example of  "modern art"    What do you think of it?   Do not worry about my feelings - be as critical or appreciative as you like!

If that's what I think it is, very clever!  :-))

I suppose it's as good...or bad...as anything else that passes for "art" these days. A new career gulling the gullible beckons, perhaps. Or perhaps not. BY.

Can you see what it is yet?
Seriously, though, RMAS vessel? Black, Buff, Red Oxide. These are the questions we should all be asking,or should this be in the 'What Ship....?' section?


Oh, you forgot to sign your master work..... bottom right please :-))

Well, I think Martin and Unbuiltnautilus have worked it out.    It is the top of my painting table!

I also find top of our wheelie bin a handy work top for various modelmaking activities, but not to the same degree as the table, because the top is not completely flat. %%

Do not forget that beauty is in the eye of the beholder  <:( <:( <:( and your "Art" is worth more when you are dead.

I actually like that image very much - so natural.........it would be almost impossible to positively create it 'from scratch' if you were a professional artist.

Can I have your permission to print that image off, frame it and hang it in my office???? I want to see what my colleagues think of my taste in art!!!!!! SERIOUSLY!!!
