Does anyone here know who does great painterly expressive figures? [ lots of use of color in skin tone, a variety of brushstrokes, etc? ]
As of now I have a couple of other artists in mind that I can use for reference for my next painting
- Jenny Saville
- Odd Nerdrum
Also, who does really good skies? Jeff Soto's skies I do admire due to the fact that he has a lot of color interpretation and various things going on in his paintings.
All Help is most appreciated
The oil painting demo by William Whitaker have a lot of tips on painting and using color in general http://www.conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=83405
One thing that really clicks for me is the tip that you should push your brush handling skill to the very edge to make it look expressive and spontaneous.

Man, please post some images!
wow, that Steve Huston guy reminds me a lot of Phil Hale's stuff. That loose brushwork really adds to the action.

i kinda wanted to mention him but figured i covered the painterly bases with williams as similar as they are they are different though. i kinda favor jason's work these days cuz it's darker and the Abe Sapien mini kicked butt but well... whatevs.
