The Whitening Snows Of Venerable Elder. Charles F Goldie .

The reason why I chose this specific painting , painted by Charles Fredrick Goldie,  was because  I thought it would be a difficult challenge to draw it and that I liked how the man’s facial really brought out his feelings . The year this painting was produced was 1916  , so this year , the painting is 96 years old .The name of the painting is called The Whitening Snows Of Venerable Elder.  What this painting looks like to me is , that he is thinking about the past and something really bad might have occurred.  

Charles Fredrick Goldie .

Charles Fredrick Goldie was born on October 20th . As a kid he was brought up by his mother and father. He was raised 7 other siblings including himself. 8 KIDS ! They were a poor family and David Goldie and Maria Parkington were struggling to feed and bring up their kids.

This Term For Extension we were given instructions to search for a painting and then craft it on hyperstudio . The theme for the term was art . We all selected our painting and drew them and put it up for a expo at school .

I liked my painting because i spent a lot of time on it , and it show's how much passion in it

  1. It's great to see this posted finally. So did it turn out to be a great challenge for such a talented graphic artist such as yourself? I love the finished product. Do you know where the original art work is today and what it is worth.
