I found these two YouTube videos of Edward Seago’s work. Very inspiring, I need to travel more! If you would like to learn more about the artist, click here.

I discovered this Indian watercolour artist from Mumbai, his name is Prashant Prabhu. I find his stylised landscapes very inspiring. He doesn’t enter watercolour competitions and so I guess this is why I’ve never heard of him before. Visit his website here.

Lunch time portrait

I seem to want to draw and paint artists that I admire. This week’s offering is Alberto Giacometti. I should have made his nose a little longer and a little bigger but otherwise I am happy with the result. Normally I tend to draw very quickly so this was an exercise in patience for my part. It took 90 minutes roughly to complete.

Joaquín Sorolla

A Spanish impressionist that I admire. This one is for sale at Sotheby’s in London! Joaquín Sorolla (1863-1923) Niños en la playa, Valencia, 27.5 X 39.5 in, oil on canvas.

Visit WikiPainting.org to see his work.

I’ve been too busy to focus on my own art, but tonight I hope to go to life drawing  🙂

Margaret Bowland – Painter of beauty.

I like her choice of subject matter. Taboo breaking is healthy and refreshing. She is also a very talented portrait painter, which is the icing on the cake! Visit her web site here.

Steve Hanks – Watercolour realist

Steve Hanks can certainly paint a nude. I admire his work, the detail is amazing, I guess he paints from photographs, it would be impossible to capture so much detail otherwise.
