Matt Harvey – Featured Artist

painter and sculptor Matt Harvey

Matt Harvey

Matt Harvey graduated from Wimbledon School of Art in London after studying Fine Art. Originally he created abstract sculptures and paintings later continuing to work on portraits. This is when he became increasingly interested in renaissance painting techniques. Studying under James Scrace, he learned the techniques of the Italian masters and now uses these techniques in his oil portraits.

As well as painting in oils Matt also makes bronze portraits and carves portraits directly in marble.

Matt Harvey kindly agreed to becoming the latest addition to my Featured Artist page. I admire his realistic creations very much.

Everyone including art collectors will love his work.

There is a link to his website when you click on the image above.

How to Paint a River – Video No.241


Today I have chosen another painting exercise by Geoff Kersey. In this 12 minute real time painting video he shows us how to paint a gently flowing river. It is a detailed realistic watercolour painting. It is one of many excellent tutorials on ArtTutor.

The website offers paid and free tutorials. I have purchased the watercolour course DVDs and I am very happy with it. I am also the proud owner of one of Geoff Kersey´s books containing many beautiful landscape paintings. So good artists can learn from other artists just as they did during the time of the old masters.

NAROMA Art Society Exhibition 2017

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

From August 9 through September 10 I will be participating in the NAROMA Art Society´s exhibition of representational art at the Feldmann Trust in Germany.

We have chosen the title – Impressionists Mirrored in the Modern World“ to indicate that a number of the paintings on display have been deliberately chosen to present mirror images of famous impressionist paintings.

The highlight of the show is a septych, a set of seven paintings combined into one to represent Monet´s water lilies. It stretches to almost half the size of Monet´s eight metre long original.

We will also run a competition to give visitors a chance to win one of the paintings if they guess the number of mirror images correctly.

We will be showing more than 20 works.

Geoff Goddard – Featured Artist

painting by Geoff Goddard

Geoff Goddard

Geoff likes to explore a range of styles and techniques but there is always a human element in his work. His gallery shows conventional portraits and still lifes proving his main purpose to create art that has beauty, requires investigation and generates an emotive response. Realism is fundamental to all his work and he revels in details and subtle changes in colour and tone.

Since retiring from teaching Geoff has focused much more on portraiture with the desire to suggest something more than just the visual record.

Geoff Goddard kindly agreed to becoming the latest addition to my Featured Artist page. I admire his realistic paintings very much.

Art collectors will love his beautiful fine art paintings.

There is a link to his website when you click on the image above.
