Artists I admire
Is there a particular Artist or process you admire?
When I am scrolling through my Facebook newsfeed or watching Youtube Videos for inspiration, I often come across Artists or art processes that I really admire.
It doesn’t mean I will ever try to replicate their work or even want to try the same process. It is just fantastic that the internet allows me to experience these amazing works.
There are too many to include in one blog so here are a few I’d like to share with you after I’ve eaten my Bouchee chocolate …. yum :
Ran Orter - http://www.ranortner.com/ - He paints the most amazing waves on huge canvases that fill the whole wall. His attention to detail for such large paintings is incredible.
Ester Roi - https://www.esterroi.com/ - Ester performs magic with her coloured pencils in the form of pebbles and underwater flowers. She has invented an Acarus Board which is “a portable, electric drawing board for wax-based drawing media. The heat helps soften or melt the waxy pigments so they can be easily manipulated and blended in a painterly fashion.”
Annemieke Mein - http://www.annemiekemein.net.au/ - Uses fabric, paint and sewing threads to produce works that are realistically accurate. Unfortunately ailing health now prevents her from working as an Artist.
Joel Rae - http://www.joelrea.com.au/ - Joel is a young Artist from Australia who paints extremely intricate contemporary surreal landscapes.
Mural Artists – I really admire mural artists who are able to paint a gigantic picture without being able to step back to make sure it looks okay! How do they do that?? I would love to be able to paint a mural!
Chalk Artists – http://chalkurbanart.com/ - These guys often spend days painting 3D art in chalk! Some of it is amaaaazing!!
Okay … that’ll do for now.
I’ll save more for another time!
Before I finish ... I would like to share that I am really honoured to have been accepted as a Member of the international Ocean Artists Society . "Using Ocean Art to inspire people around the world to a greater awareness of our need to preserve our natural world". I'm looking forward to contributing to this wonderful cause :)
Happy creating :)
