Couldn’t ask for much more inspiration than provided by these two.
Now if only I had some time to paint, that would be marvellous!
I’m pleased to say that I’ve been accepted as an Associate Member of the Armed Forces Art Society. Feeling quite chuffed – or ‘stoked’, as my American family and friends might say!
Ben Fenske is one of the artists I most admire, and whilst surfing the web a little earlier I came across an article by him from when he ran a workshop in the winter of 2009. He talks through a demo painting and also goes into what he describes as the six basics of landscape painting. It’s an interesting read, here’s a link.
The last few days have been a little busy, as you can imagine (see my previous post if you’re wondering why!) But I now have just a few quiet minutes on hand so thought I might add a quick update, by listing links to the websites of some artists whose work I particularly enjoy, and also to some art-oriented blogs that I find interesting.
If you know of others that you think are worth a look, then please do let me know.
