For those looking for Russian Art
- Dear Friends in Art Education
Many on my Survey were looking for contemporary Russian Art. Here is a
gallery featuring art of many contemporary artists. I will NOT be putting
this link on Incredible Art Department...
(http://www.gallery-a.ru/ home page)
I just explored a couple artists from the menu bar at the tops of the page.
"Buy immediately" will give you many contemporary Russian Impressionistic
works -- and more.
Many artists -- you pick ones that interest you.
(if you wander to the links page you will see why I am not linking to the
I looked at the work of Hudobko Vladimir:
some interesting figure works (virtual breakfast - virtual music - etc -
people working at the computer). There are some nude drawings.
I found this interesting fish watercolor by clicking on the Watercolors.
This reminds me a project I did many moons ago with high school students. We
floated thinned down car paints on water - swirled them around - laid the
paper over them to make a print (ha-ha - I thought I invented this idea -
that was in the 70's - what did I know?). Once our prints dried - we found
things in them and went into them India ink drawing. I created many sea
creatures. Those car paints made the BEST patinas for clay busts - so rich
in layering the metallic colors. Too bad now we can't use them with kids
(they would be considered a no-no on the list of hazardous materials -- We
just weren't as careful back in the old days - Safety wasn't taught).

Well.... I have enjoyed this site enough for one morning - now it is your
turn. SAVE the link if it interests you. I have a folder on Russian art -
that is where I am going to stash it. I just counted the bookmarks I use - I
have 7 bookmarks - you are already guess two I hope - IAD and Incredible
Resources (oh - I do have hundreds of other bookmarks but I haven't checked
any of them in eons)

P.S. Just in case you are wondering....there is a link in the links page to
"erotic art" - that is a red flag to me. I didn't bother to look any
further..... I spend lots of time viewing these sites before I link them. I
think it is worth it. I wouldn't risk taking kids to this stie - you know
how curious they can be.
