Well I finally finished the painting. Although I must admit it was mostly finished when I put up the last post, but I needed to do some finishing touches which was why I didn’t upload the whole project last time.

I used mainly Acrylic paints, black charcoal for the shadowed areas and black art pen for the fine lines. Hope you like it. Let me know what you think. Enjoy!

Canadian Artist of the Month…Theresa Young

This month I have chosen a very different type of artist. Her name is Theresa Young. She seems to combine two different styles using realistic yet very contemporary, with vibrant colours and an ethereal feeling.  I love the flow of her lines and the beautiful detail of the end results. In the samples I’ve chosen you will also see some black and white pieces that I love for their intricate lines and realistic faces. But enough about how I feel, here is a short bio of the artist.

Theresa Young started painted in oils at the age of eight and sold pastel and charcoal portraits from the age of fourteen.  She later took private art lessons with two professional artists on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada.  These lessons resulted in her  mature style which integrated both approaches into itself in different ways.  Other artists that influenced Theresa are H.R. Giger, Salvador Dali and Gervasio Gallardo.

For a more in-depth bio and more fabulous pieces of art visit Theresa’s website http://www.teresa-young.net/.

Here are just a few samples of her work. Enjoy!

Canadian Artist of the Month-Len Gibbs

This month I am featuring an artist of whom I thought had amazing talent. I am probably being a bit biased with this one because I knew him. Not really well but well enough. He used to come into my photo lab with photos of subjects he was going paint. … Continue reading

Canadian Artist of the Month – Karine Beaudoin

This month I am featuring an artist who works out of London, Ontario. I love the imagination of colours and perspective in her paintings. They are just adorable, if that’s not too simplistic a term. The colours are earthy yet bright. Well enough of my thoughts. This mini biography puts them … Continue reading
