Oil paint is a wonderful medium with which to work and create that timeless portrait. The beauty of every human face and body has forever inspired artists and always will. Inspiration may come from the play of light and shadow moving across skin and muscle; it might be trying to capture that fleeting expression or the gentle smile of the sitter. The artist deliberately looks for those telling nuances to forever capture it on canvas.
In many respects, painting landscape is similar to painting people. Thoughtful composition of the picture aims to capture the light and atmosphere of the day, perhaps the lazy heat of a summer's afternoon by the sea or the cool morning air.
Traditional fine art paintings are timeless. Classically realist paintings are not just pretty pictures hanging on the wall or photographs. An expertly rendered painting attracts attention, stirs our memories and emotions, and allows us to walk into that inner world of our soul. That is what Art does best.
