There can be few artists who have inspired so many painters both amateur and professional as the late Edward Seago. His enduring style of romantic landcsape painting captivated all who saw it. Miles Fairhurst paints in a wonderfully evocative style that captures the essence of Edward Seago's oil landscapes. On this DVD he paints four full demonstrations of the kind of subjects that Seago would turn to over and over again. A must for all Seago fans.

Alexei Savrasov: A collection of 169 paintings (HD) Description: " Alexey Kondratyevich Savrasov is one of the Russia’s most remarkable landscape painters, the originator of the so-called ‘mood landscape’. Savrasov was born into the family of a merchant. He began to draw early; in 1838 he enrolled as a student at the Moscow School of Painting and Sculpture (graduated in 1850), and immediately began to specialize in landscape painting. His efforts of the 1850s reveal the difficult process he was going through trying to overcome the academic tradition in depicting landscape. The Russian public liked his lyrical landscapes like View of the Kremlin from the Krimsky Bridge in Inclement Weather (1851) and gradually he made his name. In 1852, the artist traveled to the Ukraine where he produced a series of views of its rolling steppes The Steppe in Daytime (1852), which reflect the various aspects of his favorite subject, wide-open spaces. By the invitation of the Grand Duchess Maria Nikolayevna, the President of the Russian Academy of Arts, who commissioned several works from Savrasov, he moved to the shores of the Gulf of Finland in the neighborhood of St. Petersburg. Though the scenery there was alien to his spirit, he was able to find some innovations never seen in academic landscape painting before. In 1854, for his pictures Seashore in the Neighborhood of Oranienbaum and View in the Neighborhood of Oranienbaum (1854) he was awarded the title of Fellow of the Academy. In 1857, Savrasov became a teacher in the Moscow School of Painting and Sculpture, from which he had graduated. His best disciples Isaac Levitan and Constantin Korovin always remembered their teacher with admiration and gratefulness. In the 1860s, he traveled to England and Switzerland. His introduction to English landscape painting was most influential. The best works of the period include View of the Swiss Alps from Interlaken (1862), Rustic View (1867), Rafts (1868). The Rooks Have Come (1871) is considered by many critics to be the highest point in Savrasov’s artistic career. Using a common, even trivial, episode of birds returning home, and an extremely simple landscape, Savrasov managed to show very emotionally the transition of nature from winter to spring. It was a new type of lyrical landscape painting, called later by critics ‘the mood landscape’. The picture made his name famous. In the late 1870s and early 1880s there were many good landscapes, though early spring in the countryside remained the favorite subject of the artist. The most notable are A Winter Road (1870s), Country Road (1873), View of the Moscow Kremlin. Spring (1873), Spring Thaw. Yaroslavl. (1874), Rainbow (1875), A Provincial Cottage. Spring. (1878), Landscape with a Rainbow (1881), Sea of Mud (1894). The misfortunes in his personal life, may be dissatisfaction with his artistic career were the reason of his tragedy – he became an alcoholic. All attempts of his relatives and friends to help him were in vain. The last years of his life Savrasov led the life of a pauper, wandering from shelter to shelter. Only the doorkeeper of the School of Painting and Pavel Tretyakov (the founder of the Tretyakov Gallery) were present at his funeral." --- SUBSCRIBE: www.youtube.com/c/LearnFromMasters?sub_confirmation=1 Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/LearnFromMasters/ Google+: https://plus.google.com/+LearnFromMasters Contact: LearnFromMasters01@gmail.com --- Thanks for all support!
I begin with a sketch I made from a photo, and generally I work further from that sketch in watercolour in Edward Seago's style. The watercolour can be seen here on Flickr https://flic.kr/p/24PgvmY Edward Seago Colours used Yellow Ocher or Raw SIenna Alizarin Crimson Ultramarine Blue Aureolin yellow because Chrome Yellow don’t exist anymore! Burnt Sienna and Burnt Umber Lampblack Light Red Brushes I used some brushes here that I normally seldom use. The flat oxhair brushes are made for lettersetting art. I usually have two red sable brushes a 6 and a 12 Da Vince Maestro Tobolski Kolinsky Three W&N Squirrel wash brushes I used them a lot so I cannot see the size anymore I have a huge Squirrel brush I seldom use and that is a size 10, so my guess would be I have a 2, 4 and 6 size squirrel brush. Also found under Petit Gris Blue Squirrel brushes are the best, but also the most expensive! http://www.winsornewton.com/uk/shop/brushes/water-colour/professional-water-colour-squirrel-brushes/pure-squirel-pointed-wash-brush-pure-squirrel-pointed-wash-brushes-size-10-brush-5250310 And some riggers for detail, size 0, 1 and 4 W&N Sceptre Gold Paper I use a variety of papers, but in most cases StCuthbertsmill paper, like Bockingford, Millford and Saunders Waterford. when I do a style I try to use the painters choice!

Thank you for joining me in episode 3 of the series - Painting Masters. In this series we will review and study paintings I LOVE by successful artists I admire. Let me know what you think of this series in a comment below. Also let me know if there are artists or paintings you wish me to review. 🎨 TIME-STAMPS 🎨 00:15 - Introduction to Edward Seago 03:06 - Painting review 10:56 - Study of that painting 12:02 - Another study 12:43 - Another (quicker) study 13:27 - Conclusion 🎨 EDWARD SEAGO 🎨 Edward Seago was an English painter, working mainly in oils and watercolors. He does a kind of impressionistic style that I love. His oils are incredibly beautiful, but his watercolors are what really surprised me. He has this way of achieving a very interesting composition and level of details, without actually including lots of details. I was actually shocked at "how little" information most of his paintings actually contain. His most beautiful oils in my opinion are the ones made in the Antarctic. 🎨 TALKING POINTS & OBSERVATIONS 🎨 1. Simple composition that works really well. He placed the areas of interest around the thirds of the painting. Also, he placed two large areas of contrast to the sides. 2. Great lead-in into the painting, by that tree on the left. You are invited into the painting, and are then led all the way to the main point of interest on the hill. 3. A sense of distance and a variety of values. Soft colors and weak values in the mid-ground and background, that then turn darker and stronger in the foreground. 4. Great simplification. He was really able to "dumb-down" the scene and its components. Check out the houses on the shore of this lake. 5. Strong point of contrast to the left & beautiful negative painting around the tree branches. 6. I'm very interested in the actual work process. I believe this was done in 2 layers (with heavy wet-in-wets in the second layer). There may also be a third layer, though I can't say with certainty, and I don't see a need for it. His genius really allowed him to paint this complex scene using very few details and layers. 🎨 CONCLUSION 🎨 I hope you enjoyed this episode of Painting Masters!

Edward Seago: A collection of 77 paintings (HD)
Description: "Edward Seago enjoyed the position as one of the most popular British artists of the 20th century. He began painting at the age of seven when he was confined to his room with a heart condition. Later, fully recovered, he would study with Bernard Priestman.
He became a successful illustrator in the 1930's, working for, among others, England's poet laureate of the sea, John Masefield. After serving with the royal engineers in WWII, he would spend the remainder of his life painting and writing. He was an avid sailor which is evident in the accuracy and flavor of his sea paintings.
Exhibiting widely, his famous one man shows at Colnaghi's would usually sell out on the first day. People were known to line up by 6 am to secure the painting of their choice. Examination of Seago's work shows the influence of the Dutch 17th century school and British artists such as John Constable. His two greatest influences however were the French impressionist Eugene Boudin and American painter James McNeil Whistler."
