Barebrush presents the July art calendar with 31 artworks representing Art of the Day. Founder Ilene Skeen resumes the “Talking Art Videos” with a new schedule

I try to capture human energies.”

— Jon Rettich

SARASOTA / BRADENTON, FL, UNITED STATES, July 1, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Barebrush July calendar begins with an intriguing color pencil figure study. Jilly Seated is by Jon Rettich, Barebrush Featured Artist in NYC. The artist writes,

I try to capture human energies. I appreciate the challenge of a convoluted pose. Jilly managed a sense of absorbed solitude while the studio’s soft and not so soft sounds surrounded her apparent reverie.

— Created at Minerva’s Drawing Studio, NYC

The Barebrush Art of the Day calendar
Each Barebrush calendar features contemporary artworks in various media. These include photos, oils, watercolor, mixed media, and sculpture. You see the beauty of art created by artists working today, revealed day by day. You see the tantalizing art of the nude. You get the words of the artists. Other art calendars use one image per month or week. Barebrush showcases unique artwork for each day of the month. The art of the day is yours to see, enjoy and treasure. On the Art-of-the-Day calendar page, you can see the current calendar art revealed over time.

The “Talking Art” Method
Barebrush founder, Ilene Skeen, starts with a three-step plan: look at the art, listen to the artist, find the point. She creates the narrative and close-ups. She adds lines, arrows, and other art tools for clarity. Ilene shares what the artist says about the work. Then she sums up the point of the art. In the nine months of Art of the Day for Barebrush, Sept. 2020 through May 2021, Ilene produced 274 videos.

“Talking Art” videos are fast and fun, averaging under 3 minutes.

In July, Ilene takes this method to the next level — to famous art that you know, but never thought to know well. She asks, What do you see? What did the artist say? Why is this art special?
