Painting technique Tubeism Automatic translate
Painting is characterized by many ways and techniques of writing. Each creative person has his own degree of self-expression and a unique manner of embodiment. Our contemporary painter Alexey Zimin invented a new direction of artistic creativity, non-standard and original. He proposed calling his writing technique “tubbism.”
The origins of this trend in art
According to some art historians, the emergence of this movement was determined by the artist’s desire to paint with oil paints.
However, there are certain subtleties of working with these art materials. To work with them, they are first diluted with a special solvent. Naturally, these chemical compositions are characterized by a peculiar “aroma”. Often you have to realize your creative ideas on canvas in a ventilated room or in nature.
“Zimin Method” – Tubism
Zimin invented his own method - applying paint from tubes directly to the base, primarily in order to avoid the obsessive smells of chemicals.
His technique became widespread, and some artists borrowed his unique stylistic style. In the literature there is such a definition as “Zimin’s method”. His style of painting is not economical, but it somewhat simplifies the work on the canvas when going plein air - a palette for mixing paints and brushes are not required.
All you need is tubes of paints of various colors.
The artist paints pictures by squeezing paint from tubes directly onto the canvas. Any of them will do. It can be watercolor, acrylic, oil or tempera… The master can work on any material - on canvas, cardboard, paper, glass, photographic paper, wood, even on bricks and concrete, which is familiar to art lovers… That is, the basis provides artists with the opportunity to express their originality and style on any convenient surface.
When using this creative method, you need to stock up on paints of various colors, since finding the required shade is only possible if you have the desired color in a tube.
In order to obtain an image, the master uses a tube to apply lines and dots. If shading is needed, it is also done with a tube. It is necessary to take into account that mixing of paints is not provided, therefore, before starting work, you need to prepare tubes with the maximum presence of shades of both primary and additional colors.
Analyzing the work of Alexey Zimin, it can be noted that he skillfully depicts rather soft transitions of shades - from green to blue, from red to burgundy.
The founder of this style of painting said that, despite the seemingly simple style of his work, he thinks through the idea for creating a painting in detail, attaching importance to even small details. To give the work expressiveness and completeness, the “tubbism” technique can be combined with other types of painting.
Variety of brush stroke techniques
This subtlety of artistic creativity directly depends on the idea and flight of thought of the master. In order to create a masterpiece using this technique, there are several types of applying paint to the work surface. Let’s look at their various variations:
- semicircles, circles;
- various zigzags (made in the shape of a semicircle, applied in a sweeping manner);
- lines in the form of spirals;
- asymmetrical strokes;
- different snake shapes;
- intersecting lines (straight and curved);
- texture painting;
- other types of lines.
Art critics note the presence of moments of conventionality and abstraction in the works of artists of this direction. However, the majority of the public unanimously note that the paintings exhibited at numerous exhibitions and in collection shows are distinguished by a special originality, depending on the manner of applying strokes with a tube, an unusual play of colors, and eccentric artistic solutions.
Let’s sum it up
This drawing technique helps authors to embody spectacular color schemes and non-standard works in their works. In addition, they are not difficult for the viewer to perceive due to their brevity and originality.
Tubism gives the image a non-standard relief, original texture, color, visual effects, and helps to modify the direction of the strokes. These moments also give a special technicality and uniqueness to the painting.
