Painting a River Landscape with Herdin Radtke – Art Tuition Video No.300

Today I have selected Herdin Radtke´s video preview to his painting tutorial on how to paint a river landscape. Herdin is a professional artist who holds workshops online and in person. Here you can order the corresponding DVD.

He has toured the world from a young age from Munich to Rome and later to Spain living next door to Salvador Dali for six years.

Herdin also spent many years in France. Today he lives in his native country Germany. He teaches oil painting in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and France with the occasional trip to Marocco. Herdin has developed a special approach to blending oils allowing his students to achieve very encouraging results in a single course.

If you are interested please contact Herdin. Being a well-travelled veteran of the arts world he speaks several languages including English so by all means write to him.

Hope you will enjoy my choice of the day.

How to paint a River Bend – Video No.299


In this time lapse speed painting video Victor Yushkevich paints a river bend in about 20 minutes. It is fascinating to see how he develops depth in his painting with trees sloping up a steep hill. He captures the morning mystery extremely well. Enjoy the painting process without words and listen to the background music.

The technique will work in oils and acrylics. You may come across one or two short adverts but the painting process will be well worth it. You can always jump forward if you haven´t got the time to watch all of the video.

Hope you like my choice of the day.

Artist Eric Armusik meets Devon Art Society

Artist Eric Armusik met members of Devon Art Society via ZOOM the other day. He talked about his work, answered questions and demonstrated some of his techniques.

Eric Armusik lives in Hamburg, Pennsylvania. His first experiences with art were staring at the walls and ceilings at church on Sundays. The traditions and academic realism of Catholic religious paintings and artwork made a permanent impression that continues to influence his work today.

In 1991, Eric attended Pennsylvania State University, where he earned a B. F. A. in painting. In 1995 he received the Margaret Giffen Shoenfelder Memorial Scholarship for the Arts and finished his art history minor abroad for a semester in Todi, Italy.

During his art classes there he drew from original paintings, architecture and sculptures by the old masters such as Michaelangelo, Bernini, Caravaggio, Rubens and Donatello. The rare opportunity to study masterworks by Baroque painters Caravaggio and Artemisia Gentileschi had a profound effect on the quality of his work and focused the inspiration he experienced as a child.

Eric has since won many awards and has been represented in galleries and museums in Europe and the USA.

Koekkoek Painters at B.C. Koekkoek Museum Cleves 2020

Click on image to enlarge

On Sunday Sept.13 my friend Peter and I went to hold a painting demonstration at the Koekkoek Museum in Cleves. It was our fifth year to have been invited to exhibit and sell our works.

Peter and I painted live recreating works inspired by B.C.Koekkoek. We have been dubbed “The Koekkoek Painters” by the curator of the Museum. The photos above give you a glimpse of the show with paintings from miniatures to large-scale canvases.

The number of visitors was down compared with previous years due to the Covid restrictions compelling everyone to wear masks and the beautiful weather which people preferred to enjoy outdoors.

You will find more of my Koekkoek inspired landscape paintings when you click here. Originals and limited edition prints are available upon enquiry.
