I saw a photo on Twitter, made by my good friend Claire Hill, so I asked if I could use it for a painting and Claire said yes have a go! The scene is excellent material to make a sort of Edward Wesson painting from. I admire Mr Wesson a lot and have almost all his books. I paint on a quarter sheet Bockingford 200lb made by StCuthbertsmil. Its really a nice paper to paint on! The 200Lb was specially made for Edward Wesson it seems, he painted on 140lb, but that goggled a bit so he asked the factory if they could make it heavier and they made it, and thats why we still have it today! The finished painting can be seen here on flickr https://flic.kr/p/252j3Qx Edward Wesson Colours used Raw SIenna Alizarin Crimson Ultramarine Blue Winsor Blue or Phtalo Blue New Gamboge Burnt Sienna and Burnt Umber Light Red I use Rembrandt pigments, I am sure Wesson used W&N or Daler Rowney! 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!

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!

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!

And have a lovely week! - Liron *** MUSIC CREDITS *** Clear Sky by jimmysquare https://soundcloud.com/jimmysquare Creative Commons — Attribution 3.0 Unported— CC BY 3.0 http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/ Music provided by Audio Library https://youtu.be/Y8gsuWR4kXE
Arkhip Kuindzhi: A collection of 177 paintings (HD) Description: "The Russian landscape painter Arkhip Ivanovich Kuinji was born in 1842 in the town of Mariupol on the Azov Sea in the South of Russia. Kuinji was of Greek descent – during the reign of Catherine II his ancestors, together with other Greek refugees, settled near the Azov Sea. Kuinji lacked a formal education, but his eminent gift helped him attain a notable success in art. He evidently was allowed to attend classes at the St. Petersburg Academy of Arts, had training in the workshop of the famous marine painter Ivan Aivazovsky, visited the classes of the Society of Art Lovers. In 1868, having passed exams in general education and special subjects at the Academy of Arts, Kuinji received a diploma of a freelance artist for his independent work. His earlier paintings Autumn Weather (1870), Lake Ladoga (1870) and On the Valaam Island (1873) brought him first recognition. In 1873, Kuinji traveled around Germany, France, Switzerland and Austria and thoroughly studied the works of great masters. On his return, however, he creates works which were absolutely unlike those he had seen in European museums. His Ukrainian Night (1876) opened a new romantic stage in his work. He used special light effects to paint nature and achieved such astonishing results, that people, who saw the picture for the first time at an exhibition, tried to check its back, if there was any special source of light. Exhibited at the Paris World Fair in 1878 The Ukranian Night attracted the attention of the eminent French critics. Kuinji developed a new vision in his next painting A Birch Grove (1879). It is both realistic and conventionalized; it looks as a condensed essence of reality. In 1880, he completed Moonlit Night on Dnieper (1880). The picture was a great success. Kuinji became an idol of the public. But he was not understood by his colleagues who saw in his art only illusory color effects, did not support his romantic searching. Probably it was the reason of his withdrawal from all exhibitions and public arrangements. He worked hard in his studio, experimenting much, but only his close friends saw his works. In 1894, he accepted an invitation to become a professor of the Academy. He was very fond of teaching and his students admired him. Among Kuinji’s pupils were several prominent artists such as N. Rerikh, K. Bogaevskiy, A. Rilov, V. Purvit and others. Unfortunately his career of a professor did not last long, he was dismissed for supporting students in their protests against authorities. But he continued to teach his students privately, and then paid for their trip around Europe. Later he presented the Academy with a big sum of money, the interest from which was to be used for awards to young painters. In 1909, he founded The Kuinji Society, an independent association of painters, to which he left all his pictures and property. The next year he died.

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."
