The biggest misconception about these paintings is that they are beautiful effects created by some technique. Such effects are more common with contemporary artists to make their work more engaging and attractive without implementing any structural change to the entire painting process. Here are fiveexamples to differentiate them. 1it’s a common practice for students to use charcoal in drawing classes. The charcoal,unlike pencil, leavesdark thick lines but some creative student can turn these lines into a smooth surfacesby just rubbing thick lines with a cloth and spreading the charcoal evenly. This action creates an effect in drawing.2 Another student might take some post-itnotes ,cut them into differentshapes, place them on top ofdrawingsto establish boundaries and then do therubbing.. This approach can create sharp silhouettes after the post-it notes are removed. Here the effect was elevated to a technique. This gave us smooth surfaces and also defined outlines.
3Another student wants to create depth by applying one point perspective. Is the law of perspective just another technique Of course not, it’s a science of space which has been used hundreds of years as a painting method. But even the method has its limitations. Perspective gives us an illusion of depth, but it does not have any relevance to color and design, light and dark and other aspects of the art-making. It’s not hard to guess that the next step of the ladder will be a process that introduces entirely new solutions to all the aspects of the painting process. the creation oflight and darkform and spacecolors and shadesdepth the entire overlapping’sreflections andshadows .1ST 2nd 3rd4th planes are transformed entirely. Effects and techniques are the result of the impulsive creativity, while the methods and processes are structural changes of the entire operation. The last two break away from the tradition but remain in a comfortable reach for the traditionalist. In another words the new structural and operational changes remain in the same medium.5. If another student decides to use photography, the student moving into entirely new medium
