Both liked messing about with an easel
Based on those two I'd go Hitler. Bit dreary.
Both meh. Which is worth more then?
In my opinion both were obviously capable amateurs. There is nothing to make either stand out as better than the other.
Kenneth Mars is convincing though!
You reckon? Going by the pics in the OP I'd put Adolf way ahead. Loads more detail and perhaps a very low professional standard. I reckon I could knock up something of about the same quality as the Churchill offering.
Me too, regarding the Churchill sample.
Hitler’s looks more technical than artistic. As a illustration of his eye for detail he obviously had the better technique, though he probably was a bit more intense mentally.
Churchill's one is better IMO. Easier to replicate technical/architectural detail than to convey warmth.
And it’s Churchill’s back garden so he would have an affinity with it.
It's still shit. Adolf's is half decent!
My post was a reply to mauvais’ post.
Churchill's is just "I went on a painting course and did a bog standard pastoral scene by numbers". I prefer Adolf's. You could sell either to a tourist though.
Hitler's all day for me. Churchill's is shite.
If I couldn't do any better than that after taking a course I'd want my money back.
There was a painting of Churchills on fack or fortune I thought his art
was rather good.
Hitler certainly liked buildings.... people ... not so much.
They are both better than anything i could do. I prefer Churchill's style/mood although the house jars and ruins it for me. Hitlers is technically proficient but dreary and not in a good way. The bottom third ruins it for me.
I don't like either of them tbh.
This is a bit better from Churchill but he's completely fucked up that front mast.
And the bottom of the boat looks very odd...weird perspective.
Nice sky though...
Compared to this, that's a masterpiece
I don't know if it's the use of colour but there's something lacking from Hitler's. Churchill's have some oomph, some emotion.
I prefer the dilapidated barns to the ship.
I quite like this:
Nice colours and light in that... I like that too.
I like the Churchill ones. They're looser and more imaginative in their use of colour than I would have expected and there's some gusto there.
Hitler's are a bit A level and there's something unpleasantly not quite right about them, like he draws all the lines straight and whole from beginning to end.
It appears to be the aftermath of a battle in the Great War.
This is actually quite reasonable isn't it?
Yeah, if you're Hallmark.
