As a working Artist-Painter, I have many years’ experience ( In Ireland and in France) of teaching people how to produce lst class illustrations and paintings – in all fields and in all aspects of drawing and painting mediums and materials.

Although I specialise in one-to-one Professional, Art Personal Tuition, I also hold a number of challenging Open Days (limited to just 4 persons) which comprise a Professional Art Class in the morning and in the afternoon, the students are given the time to unleash their creativity and to create a wonderful  work of art of their own.

THE LADY IN BLACK.

This is an original, but immaculate, 1952, Jaguar XK 140.   And this lady, comes in B L A C K.

.    As a background fitting to the elegance of this wonderful classic vehicle, I have painted in the famous Mont. St. Michel, one of Brittany’s most iconic landmarks.

   The actual size of this motoring artwork is 42cm x 30cm.

ART WORK IN HIGH-SPEED ACTIION

Anne D'Alton's Artworks, motoring artwork, painting

Bearing in mind that not only do I enjoy driving rally cars, but also love drawing and painting them, this commission has been a pleasure to create.

The Client’s brief was simple, just paint my car, in action!

The car, in this instance is a Ford Escort Mk 2.  and I have show it, with the driver and co-driver, against a rural style background, going over a muddy section, at high speed.  This action is taking place in Ireland.

AN ADVENTURE IN ART.

Anne D'Alton's Artworks, contemporary art, illustrtation, ink drawing, Line and wash, painting, portrait, watercolour

Artists tend to be a little quirky!.

By Artists, I include all those involved in the creative process, i.e. artists, painters, sculpters, musicians, actors, singers.  and sportspeople    We do not tend to be l00% predictable (unless we chose to be) , nor indeed 100% conventional  and again, not unless that is our choice.

Much of our work may meet the needs and expectations of the paying public, but every now and again, we are permitted to uleash a different way of approaching our work

As an example of this type of “difference”,  I have shown here an ink and wash illustration of a young woman.   However, to it, I have added the dimension of dreams.   Flowers and little creatures emerge from around her and a tiny dragon sits on the artist’s hand.   The sitter’s face is illuminated by a variety of colours and her lips are touched up in the colours of France.

THE DRAMATIC IMPACT OF PAINTING IN OILS

Anne D'Alton's Artworks, illustrtation, ink drawing, motoring artwork, oil painting, painting, portrait

As a demonstration of the dramatic use of oil paint, I have demonstrated here, one of my artworks, a portrait of the late (and very great) Graham Hill  F1 and World Champion Motorsport Racing Driver.

This is not a large work but the use of oil paints in this instance, make, I feel, a very imposing artwork.

WATER COLOURS AREN’T JUST FOR WIMPS….

Anne D'Alton's Artworks, Car illustratiion, illustrtation, motoring artwork, painting, watercolour

For some strange reason, that is, until the advent of Turner, watercolours were considered as a “female” past-time

In this Motoring Artwork, depicting a very dramatic car – Subaru Impreza WRC – I have been as faithful as possible to the imposing blue of the paintwork of this vehicle.   And, it is a WATERCOLOUR.

ARTISTIC BOUNDARIES CAN BE STRETCHED.

Anne D'Alton's Artworks, canvas, charcoal, illustrtation, oil painting, painting, portrait

In this portrait of the fantastic British Actor, John Hurt,  instead of the conventional oil portrait, this painting shows only part of the face in colour and the rest in cartoon form.    The work has been illustrated using oil paints and charcoal on stretched canvas.
