Training about cities.
Beautiful drawing, even if it’s not moleskine.
That is a moleskine, actually, isnt it? Looks the same as my landscape watercolour moly And its a beautiful painting either way i agree, love how the red is interacting with the blue =)
Boulgakow copies a picture of a larger painting on an empty moleskine page. At least that is what I suspect, he should explain himself. All his moleskine background pages are exactly the same.
BTW, this fake ‘skine and copying goes for most of the “favourite ‘skines”. Check it out.
Of course I could be wrong, If so, I sincerely apologise.
And all that being said, I still admire Boulgakow’s fantastic colours and free painting style. A real Master.
I agree, this is beautiful pic!
Regarding copy-paste procedure I tend to agree that none of sjguild’s (his works make majority in favourite skines) contributions is actually Moleskine (and I know that about 10% of mine fall into that category as well), but we wouldn’t split hairs here would we. I mean, Leo accepts and we enjoy – sometimes it just gets better on another sheet of paper and it would be pitty if we missed it!?
To quote Leo as he once said “we prefer Moleskine but we are no Moleskine snobs” or something along those lines.
Rene is right, so is Ziza. I’m fully aware of Pascal’s little shenanigans, but I would still publish his art. Because I really enjoy it, and so do everyone else. His style, tools, and techniques (have you seen the videos?) call for a large canvas, and, unfortunately, even the Moleskine A4 Folio is too small to produce these watercolors. I, for one, would love to have a couple of them framed on my wall.
Keep posting, Pascal! Just don’t bother with the faux Moleskine backdrop.
Leo, I fully agree on that. “shenanigans”, I never heard that word before. Must be Irish?
Shenanigans in the dictionary:
Main Entry: she·nan·i·gan
Etymology: origin unknown
1 : a devious trick used especially for an underhand purpose
2 a : tricky or questionable practices or conduct —usually used in plural b : high-spirited or mischievous activity —usually used in plural
I am also aware. But its all about art , Moleskine is a tool, even a favorite one. I enjoy Pascal’s work and admire Sjguild’s masterpieces.
Sorry about all these troubles.
The troubles started with some messages last year telling that I propose drawings but they are not on moleskine scrapbook.
I use moleskine a lot.
But for ideas, when I’m on the way, for doodles about further larger paintings.
I started painting on them and I won’t stop using them.
But, lot of friends asked for my watercolors, to be framed in their house.
So I decided to paint now on large paper, 80x60cm, in order to make my friends happy with bigger paintings on their walls.
Then, came the complains about these watercolors not made on moleskine.
So, I copy and paste the painting on a moleskine background for last past year.
And now, the same complains, about the not real moleskine.
So, I think all these guys are right, my paintings are not on moleskine scrapbook so probably I don’t have to submit them here.
I will try to find another website about large size watercolors and stop disturbing everybody here.
I guess some complainers will get happy then.
So, everything gonna be all right.
I think you missed the general feel of our comments that were more than positive. So, cut the crap and continue posting or else…
Pascal, everybody said they love your paintings and want you to show more. Nobody cares what paper or size you using, we all love your work and want you to post here. Please, don’t get upset.Nous tous aimons votre travail. S’il vous plaît, gardez l’être ici.
Pascal, tout ne serait pas tout droit!
Pascal has been posting his work, in his own fashion, for as long as I have known him. If he left Skineart everyone would loose out. If some think that his methods of painting/posting are against the spirit of the website then they are entitled to their own opinion. Personally I don’t mind how stuff is arrived at as long as, in this case, I can continue to experience a true master at work. If using other materials, than Moleskine, was “against the rules” then people might have a genuine grievance but, as Leo has said, “Post everything-Even though we prefer Moleskine – we’re not Moleskine snobs.” This is the quote, which Ziza remembers, which Leo gave, recently, in reply to one of our new members enquiring about the use of “Non-Moleskine” submissions. The whole thread can be found here http://www.skineart.com/forums/topic.php?id=17&page=3.
So there we have it! It is OK to post stuff not in Moleskines.
If, as I suspect in this case, “complaints” have surfaced they have been made in ignorance of the above facts. Sometimes, when we say something we often regret this and its very hard to recover any semblance of goodwill – my opinion of course. To ALL parties concerned, if there is some way I can help to smooth the roughened surfaces then drop me a line:
I’m doing this, in a “moderator’s capacity”, as I realise that to loose ANY of our members, because they might feel embarrassed or excluded in some way, would be a tragedy and be of no use to the Skineart community. Let’s go on from here folks. I look forward to seeing much excellent art from all concerned in the future.
I’d rather see Pascal’s paintings than to miss out. They are too beautiful to miss.
I think most of us are Moleskine fans, but that doesn’t mean to have to turn into Moleskine snobs, like Leo said.
Keep on posting Pascal!!!
I think pasting to moleskine background was an honorable effort to please more people. Bottom line is everyone enjoys your work! To stop posting would only please a very few complainers. Hope to see more soon!
Pascal, please keep posting! Your work inspires me.
