    Landscape studies have some great light in them, love the temperature contrasts in them.

    Ah yeah agreed with Koto, nice cold shadows and warm light masses in the plein airs. I especially like that dab of saturated atmosphere in the shadows in the first landscape. Pens are looking good too, have you found a multi-pen yet?

    totally digging the face sketches--so minimal and yet so much information is conveyed.

    Heyo, last update is good. Where are the recent Mall paints? I like the modelling in the early block-ins.

    So I finally got around to taking a pic of your portrait of me:

    I got it framed up in my garage

    "The more I saw and talked with the exceptionally amiable, modest, meditative and kind-hearted Levitan, the more I looked at his deeply lyrical landscapes, the better I came to understand and appreciate...intense feeling and true poetry in art. I realised that you don't have to copy objects and diligently prettify them with colour to make them look as effective as possible- that is not art. I realised that the most important thing in any art is feeling and soul- they are that very word with which the prophet was commanded to fire in the hearts of men. And I came to understand that the word can in the same way be voiced by colour, by a line or a gesture as by a speech."

    Ah ha, I recognize you now. I can put a face to the piccys ! Nice conversing with you in Oxford land (I'm Rich, the bald dude).

    I'll have to pester you about this plein air business since I'm notorious at making a mess with oils.

    Nice oils btw, lovely progress

    Great to see those plein airs and those great orientalist studies again, seeing this update has definitely fixed my otherwise sour morning. The BP repaint is nice to see outside the camera screen too!

    Parsakoira- thanks naw, i think you'll do just fine with oils, just takes time as with learning anything

    “But the real artist will grow slowly, and will get the best out of himself only by degrees, as his experience tests his sentiment, as constant brooding over his tastes shows him what he himself likes, and increasing power of imagination teaches him to take advantage of his own skill and of the lessons of tradition that suit the expression of his personal view of nature. By so acting only can he escape pastiche and mere mannerism on the one hand, while he avoids, on the other, crude object-painting and timid, piecemeal realism.”

    Armstrong, W. 'Sir Henry Raeburn'.(1901). London: William Heinemann. p.9
