Sandra Flood, portrait artist with composition skills

I came across Sandra Flood’s website while surfing last night, her oil painting technique is very good but her composition talent is even better. I really enjoyed trawling her site.

I found this artist, Sean Cheetham while I was surfing on my lunch break, his portrait painting skills are good and the music track to the video is enjoyable too! His blog: http://seancheetham.blogspot.com

Duffy Sheridan’s painting course

I am half way through this course and finding it very useful in my quest to learn how to paint portraits. Duffy Sheridan teaches at a slow informal pace that can sometimes be tedious but I personally like his laid back style, one gets to know him after a while, this is nice because he seems to be a decent  relaxed – American type of dude. He is also extremely talented which is an important ingredient to me enjoying his portrait painting course.

Audrey Kawasaki’s work is both Manga and Art Nouveau inspired, her technical skills are top-class. I find the work both erotic and innocent, the fact that a lot of the paintings are directly on wood add a lot of warmth to the compositions.
