Hi Permies, I am an artist who has a non professional interest in depictions of simple human technologies depicted in art. I will post a few things I find here, unless I am re-directed to another section. (I am aware of copyright issues and all the images a posted under fair use).

thanks
Alan

I should add that when I look at these paintings I am more looking at the objects/construction. One thing that you can usually count on when artists paint in a realist style is that they are good observers. They may not know how to construct a door hinge, or oven but the depiction is usually quite faithful.

My first bit of advice is that if you are going to be a mime, you shouldn't talk. Even the tiny ad is nodding:
