Studies of Paintings

Various Paintings Studies:

There are many paintings out there that have a wealth of information on costumes, clothing and even attitudes, that were held towards those items of clothing. We have discovered that the more you look; the more you learn and sometimes just forcing oneself to list things from the image uncovers a great wealth of stuff previously missed. Using these studies as a total excuse, we’ve managed to glean quite a lot from the following paintings.

Needless to say that this is a page that is going to be permanently added to! But, currently, we have, on this Page, some Street Scene paintings, also a few studies on our Mr Wonderful, aka Paul Sandby and some of his drawings and watercolours (…coming soon…) and we’ve got a melee of other artists and paintings that we thought would be good to delve into – sleeves rolled up and everything!

We hope our Notes help you and are found to be useful at spotting stuff that could otherwise goes un-noticed.
