International Artist Portraits

Bart Lindstrom

I thought I would share these with you. You can see them all here. All the artists who took part are fantastic. I love the loose style with very little detail. Aaron Westerberg is one of my favourite portrait painters, but then again there are so many it would be hard for me to say who is my all time favourite. Go and take a look yourself and tell me what you think.

Peter Hall Workshop

This painting was quite interesting to do. I started with something completely different and didn't like where it was going. When I started to scrape off the paint, I smeared that gunk back onto the canvas and it looked like rocks, so that was the beginning of this painting. Turned out OK I think ?

Practice Paintings

I gave this little painting to my grandson.

I don't normally paint landscapes, buildings, or scenery and I don't normally work with a palette knife much either, but this was enjoyable to say the least.
