This page includes some of my favorite artistic studies, including some messy ones because there's a quality I like about them.
I want to celebrate the progress I make in studies as well as final artworks.
Creating this page was a nice retrospective as it made me go through my archives and think about why I like a particular artist over another, and what drove me to choose to study say, Didier Barra over say John Singer Sargent (though there is a Sargent or two in there).
All outgoing links go to Wikipedia with the exception of Dennis Houwers whose is an Artstation link.
Some of the painters I've studied include:
- Didier Barra (also known as Francois de Nome)
- Frank Frazetta
- Simon Denis
- Dennis Houwers
- Ivan Aivazovsky
- John Constable
- Joseph Wright
- James Whistler
- Winslow Homer
- Michael Whelan
- Lilla Cabot Perry
- Arnold Bocklin
- Philippe de Champaigne
