The Language Of Nature...

Posted by
Pavan Kaul (Mumbai, India) on 13 July 2010 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

It is not the language of painters but the language of nature which one should listen to, the feeling for the things themselves, for reality is more important than the feeling for pictures.
`Vincent Van Gogh

Everyone wants to understand painting. Why don't they try to understand the singing of birds? People love the night, a flower, everything that surrounds them without trying to understand them. But painting - that they must understand.
~ Pablo Picasso

My Spotlighted Images

Bettina from Los Angeles, United States

Wow. Fantastic. Such excellent colors and the capture of the clouds inside the valley beyond. So atmospheric and beautiful. I love the little trees, the fine details in the topography, that darkening sky, and that green! Excellent again, Pavan.

SOUL AFLAME from The bosom of Mother Nature, United Kingdom

Mother nature's rich bounty never fails to amaze and delight these eyes, and here you give us a frame which so simply, and devestatingly shows why for me. An incredible perspective like an Eagle in flight , I want to land on the tree that overlooks the view, and count my blessings for all that I am, and all that I have.

The quotes, naturally from the masters are, perfection.
