Irish castles are always dramatic and this is an example (with a little bit of “artistic” licence, thrown in) executed in ink and watercolour – line and wash.
I am an animal lover, so work featuring animals is always a pleasure. This watercolour is now in a private collectiion.
Some people deem still-life to be old-fashioned….. Details and price of this original, signed, artwork available on demand.
The drama of this flower, short-lived as it is – was well worth painting.
Do you want to master the skill of making quick and accurate drawings and paintings? Or do you long to create a truly superb work of art?
Then come an join me in my fully equipped Art Studio in gorgeous Brittany – and make your dream come true…
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.
For full details and tariffs on these excellent programmes, etc., please contact me at:-
Having been trained in the old-fashioned way – I know that building an artwork from scratch, although a slow process, can have very satisfactory results – for the artist and the viewer/buyer.
This particular Motoring Artwork depicts the late, amazing, Scottish Rally Driver, Colin McRae, MBE. World Rally Champion, with his Subaru Impreza WRC. To complete the artwork, I have added in two further details, one, the Family Crest overwritten with a short written script and the other, the Flag of Scotland.
It took two months plus to complete this artwork and I hope you enjoy it.
I watched a programme about a painting challenge yesterday and whilst I enjoyed the various ways with which each artist approached their subject, one thing I really noticed was the very tense way in which almost all of them held their drawing and painting (brushes and palette knives, etc.) implements. In this illustration, note how the brush is barely held in the artist’s hand. This takes time to master, but is well worth the effort.
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.
All my artworks are certified and signed originals.
