    Sounds like a fine post-Apocalypse plan. I’ll grab a train over if we’re drifting into ‘delicious beer’ thread territory too :).

    This morning I watched an 'Exhibition On Screen' DVD documentary about David Hockney's exhibitions in 2012(A Bigger Picture-East Yorkshire landscapes)&2016(portraits and one still life)at the RA in London. I thought the documentary provided a pretty detailed insight into Hockney's methods and techniques for different types of painting, I.e. landscape, still life and portrait. I'd recommend seeking it out if you like Hockney's work and want to know more about his methods and way of thinking about art.
    'Winter Timber in Bridlington' is a personal favourite

    mine is very conventional, which surprises me since I go more for abstract stuff like de Kooning but Wyeth's Christina's World has long been a favorite...

    I've been on that!

    Claude Monet's house and gardens at Giverny are one of those tourist attractions that actually live up to the hype, and then some.

    I always liked the work of Mondrian.

    And it's life size. It's like you're sitting at a table in the tavern.

    Las Meninas! Fantastic painting. And full of hidden messages.

    I've seen a lot of paintings in the flesh and this is the greatest painting I've ever seen. Runner up is El Greco's Burial of Count Orgaz. Bucket list: Giotto's Arena Chapel!

    Those are all excellent works indeed. I posted my favorite earlier in the thread: Favorite Painting of All Time , followed by a very unsettling one from Goya.

    That Vermeer is from another planet great. I couldn't find the Goya, which one is it, Saturn Devouring His Children?

    This one: Favorite Painting of All Time , the most devastating of the "black paintings" in my opinion.
