I envy this brushwork by Maggi Hambling.  Also the energy and texture.  Go look at her website right now.  (It gives me a bunch of errors but the two paintings I was able to see were totally worth it).  Here’s the wiki about her with some interesting biographical details.


Wave by Prabhakara Jimmy Quek

This is a serenely flowing painting by Prabhakara Jimmy Quek (The “Prabhakara” is Sanskrit and means “source of light”).

Beautifully detailed, realistic watercolor from Australian marine artist Wayne Roberts:

I like to know that people actually read my blog occasionally.  Oh, sure, I could check my site stats, but most of my hits are from spambots.

    • Oh. I wonder what’s wrong with the second one. I see it just fine.

      Yeah, I know. It’s greatness that is kinda depressing because it’s so damn great. It makes one acutely aware of the difference in skill levels between oneself and Greatness.

      On the other hand, she’s a woman painter widely accepted as Great, and she’s a lesbian too, so she’s overcome two massive social hurdles that usually stand between an artist and Greatness. That’s awesome.
