This art blog invites you to join me in the love of the fine arts and its many facettes.
I shall be posting free videos on various aspects of painting. The material which I found useful was selected from the best free postings of various artists I could find on a given subject. It will always be about contemporary art mainly of landscapes and seascapes in the figurative style and realism.
Over time I should also like to share with you my experience in creating art and publishing my work via the internet and other means.
You may be particularly interested in my articles on how to deal with certain subjects such as preparing for an art exhibition and how to paint in oils, acrylics, or watercolour.
So you are welcome to come back whenever you find the time.
I have been painting and drawing as long as I can remember yet it is only now after a full working life that I can find the time to publish my experience.
I am self-taught, now painting professionally in oils or acrylics on canvas or canvas boards. I also master drawings in coloured pencil on fine-art paper.
As a member of the Devon Art Society I prefer realistic presentations of my subject trying to grasp the beauty of nature without a detour through abstraction.
My favourite subjects are the coast and country of Devon and Cornwall as well as the mountains of Austria but I have also captured famous buildings around Europe and attractive sites in Germany.
