designer loves art...Maxfield Parrish...206

sometimes there is no other like the original.

this is Maxfield Parrish

born in Philadelphia,  he showed  talent form quite an early age,  this can be since in the letters he illustrated when he was a teenager. although at the beginning he starts interested in architecture it didn't take a long time before he was considered an artist. he first looked for instruction  to Howard Pyle however it came clear that he needed little to no instruction, so he started his career. during his career is when he found his roots in color, his technique and color is  known as  "Parrish blue", as well as "jewel like" this means that  any reproduction of his work will never show its color like the originals would do. his subject cross the border into a fantasy land and with the brilliancy of the colors provides the viewer of an image that is completely dreamlike. I will say that I had a lot of trouble trying to find images that would be similar to what they would look like in person, although similar it would be different from the true beauty of the original.
