    Notes: 18

    i really wish classical and renaissance oil painting style was still taught and preserved (aka i wish i could paint like that) cuz can you IMAGINE surreal themes/relevant concepts/modern social statements being painted in that style now? it would blow my little mind! imagine someone painting a statement about ferguson in the style of delecroix. imagine a conceptual piece about aliens in the style of tavernier! i got to work on technical style so i can start fuckin with the rest of it
