What was Thatcher’s True Property Legacy? 

The hopes and dreams of generations to come have been destroyed by the economic ideals of the leaders that followed her. Owning your own home is no longer an attainable dream.

…the next must have object you purchase will hopefully be an investment because your home isn’t

The demand for good affordable art has been spearheaded by an interest from emerging economies. An increasing number of private individuals have been teaming up with ‘ART” experts to get advise on the up and coming, emerging artists. Some financial advisers and institutions are encouraging clients to include art in their portfolios. Not only has this created a market for new artists but established, lesser known creators (that have been flying below the radar) are now beginning to ride on the crest of the wave. We read reviews, visit galleries, go shopping and are sometimes captured by cynical marketing. When friends, neighbors and family show off their latest lifestyle purchases, frantic impulse buying (online) begins – we want the lifestyle but we want it cheaper…

The Gilded Gutter Life of Francis Bacon

The Gilded Gutter Life of Francis Bacon

The paintings of Francis Bacon have always stood out in the crowded museums and galleries that are stuffed full of mediocre British paintings. Daniel Farson gives a personal view of his (if only in his own mind) ‘friend’s’ chaotic debauched life, gay lovers, masochistic beatings and ‘bits of rough’. This is in no way a […]

Francis Bacon and Nazi Propaganda – BOZAR – Francis Bacon’s Studio

There are books that bring new perspectives to painting and the lives / methodologies of artists. Unfortunately Francis Bacon and Nazi Propaganda brings nothing new to the party. The work and times of Francis Bacon are well documented. The use and origins of Bacon’s source material are well-known, some of which are even preserved. This book […]

Sketch in oil paint 2012

From the blog of Peter Bright

I’m not sure why I have painted this image but…

We were given a potted pepper plant and I have loved watching the peppers grow, changing colour from green to red. I took loads of photos of it but decided to see if I could paint it in oils. I have done three versions of the same plant, two on board and one on canvas – the image above is the first sketch.

An oil sketch or oil study is an artwork made using oil paints, abbreviated in handling and looser than a ‘finished painting’. Originally these were created as preparatory studies or modelli, to gain approval for the design of a larger commissioned painting. They were also used as designs (working drawings) for specialists in other media, such as printmaking or textiles. The concept of a free-flowing painting became acceptable as an independent (finished) work, with no thought of it needing to be ‘finished’.

Sometimes you just have to get back to basics and do a simple still life – returning back to the basic skills of painting a real subject is an interesting exercise – even if not very rewarding.

Sketching: Other common tools for making marks include graphite pencils, pen and ink, inked brushes, wax color pencils, crayons, charcoal, chalk, pastels, markers, styluses…

It could be argued that photocopying machines and printers can create sketches.

Tubes of Oil Paint cost a lot

I cant believe how much oil paints cost – I’m going to have to charge for my paintings by the square inch (or centimeter) from now on.
