After Weistling

Part of the reason for my lack of posts recently is that my painting world has been rocked by Morgan Weistling. I picked up his (excellent) 10-hour oil demo last month, and its made me look at a lot of my own procedures and re-evaluating them. He paints with little tiles of colour, and the effect that gives is something I'm interested in finding in my own work. It's new to me, and it's a little scary. So here's a Weistling study.

Thanks for sharing that ....his stuff is so beautiful . Reaching that level is something I think most of us dream about .To be able to paint that well is something else .Looking forward to seeing where you take your inspiration .

Cheers for stopping by also .

Also - meant to say the sketch looks beautiful and the brush work is quite different than where you normally have gone . It's really exciting to see where you are changing and evolving . It's something I think we all need to do more often .Really inspirational .

Cheers .

Ooooooooooooh. Now that's -really- nice. It's almost...well. For lack of a better word - soft-focus painting. Not quite impressionism but that's how a film scene would look like through a soft lens and filtered lighting. I think it's gorgeous!

And the Adrian Brody rocks!

Nice one Marco! I like Weistling's work a lot. What a talented painter. And you picked up the dvd? How cool is that. I have one from Scott Burdick painting in the studio. It's really good too. Great work man! Can't wait to see more.
