My apologies for the sporadic posts, I’ve been working my way through a project I have on the go and it’s taking up a LOT of my time, in a good way, of course. You can see what I’ve been up to HERE
In the meantime, here are a few sketches I made at the library a week or so ago, horses are a huge challenge for me, what better way is there to improve your drawing than drawing those things you find hard… bloody hard…
And for those who aren’t aware, my new book, ‘The Fantasy Artroom’ published by that superb art book publisher Dover Publications, is available from all good book stores, amazon.com and The Book Depository, get your copy now….
I’ve become very interested in a tonalist approach to painting, and to be honest, I feel I’ve been applying many of it’s philosophies throughout my time painting. As much as I love detail sometimes, the pure bliss of laying colours down this way really appeals to me. The work of the American Landscape master George Inness has really knocked me on my bum. The guy was incredible, a fellow Taurus and more importantly, a truth seeker, a seeker of life’s mysteries… his work and his unique approach to life really moves me. I expect to be making a lot of paintings in this manner in the future.
