16 Jul A Colourful Journey
Why release a new We Love Artkit with three hand-drawn canvasses and no brushes or paint?
Many of our art lovers have said that they still have enough painting materials and brushes leftover from their first We Love Artbox to use again, so please give us more pre-sketched canvasses so we can continue painting! Based on our experience of giving painting lessons in Dubai to thousands of art lovers, we have carefully selected three complimentary pre-sketched masterpieces with guidance that will take you and your wall on a colourful journey of creation! The Colourful journey delivers to your home in one We Love Artbox and makes a perfect art gift for you or a loved one.
What is included in ‘A Colourful Journey’?
The three pre-sketched canvases waiting for you to paint and sip something nice with that are included in this bundle present us with a diverse range of artworks, ranging from Post Impressionism (Sunflowers), Pop Art (A Bigger Splash) and Art Nouveau (Lady with a Fan). What they all have in common is a glorious harmony of colours and also bold, colourful and innovative art.
A Bigger Splash by David Hockney painted in 1967
Whilst still challenging you to create something from nothing from your palette (it is not as simple as paint by numbers for adults and still presents you with an element of freedom), the beginner level Bigger Splash kicks off your colourful journey.
David Hockney is one of the most popular and widely recognised artists of our time. For over sixty years he has enchanted audiences with his bold, colourful and innovative art.
A Bigger Splash is perhaps David Hockney’s best-known artwork.
It depicts a swimming pool beside a modern house, disturbed by a large splash of water created by an unseen figure who has apparently just jumped in from a diving board.
He used acrylic paint on white cotton duck canvas to paint A Bigger Splash, he was one of the first artists to make extensive use of acrylic.
Sunflowers by Vincent van Gogh painted in 1888
What better canvas painting idea is there than Sunflowers! By Using just three tints of yellow ‘and nothing else’, Van Gogh achieved a glorious harmony of colours. Yellow, for him, was an emblem of happiness – in Dutch literature, the sunflower was a symbol of devotion and loyalty. In their various stages of decay, these flowers also remind us of the cycle of life and death.
The simple motif also profoundly appeals to a lot of people.
It is the painting that is most often reproduced on cards, posters, mugs, tea-towels, and stationery. It was also the picture that Van Gogh was most proud of.
Lady with a Fan by Gustav Klimt painted in 1918
Painting at home perhaps with some wine and paint (if that takes your fancy) or orange juice, your colourful journey ends with the beautiful and challenging Lady with a Fan. Born in 1862 in Austria, Gustav Klimt is an example of an Art Nouveau artist.
This painting is quite beautiful with the golden background full of pretty flowers and a turquoise bird.
The lady is also gorgeous and styled in a Japanese dress, much like a kimono, while holding a Japanese fan.
Klimt finished this painting before suffering a fatal stroke in 1918.
What shall I do with my three completed paintings?
Hang them on your wall, bask in the colour and wait for your friends to ask you where you got them from.
