That's the schedule!The French genius of the past Gustave Dore (Gustave Doré, 1832−1883) already in 10 years illustrated the “Divine Comedy” by Dante, at 15 he began his professional career as a caricaturist, and at 16 he became the highest paid illustrator of books in France. Dore literally enlivens book texts, from the Bible to Balzac, from Cervantes to Shakespeare and Hugo. The most famous engravings of Dore (this phrase alone became the “card” of the creator), however, he worked in a variety of genres and techniques, including watercolorAkvarel (from Italian. "Aquarello") - a well-known technique of drawing with water-based paints, invented in Article III in China. Water color paints become transparent after dissolving in water; therefore, when applied to grainy paper, the image looks airy and thin. In contrast to oil paintings, watercolor works do not have textural strokes. To read further, painting and sculpture.
Interestingly, Dore worked on a schedule: in the morning - graphics, then painting, and in the evening - again graphics. And each creation, whether it be monumental canvases or small miniatures made with ink or pencil, amazes with the art of drawing, amazing detail, the play of light and shadow, but most importantly - the power of the artist’s imagination.
