  • @anwesha nice list! I like Savchenko's fall leaf paintings a lot. He does a great job at using super bright saturated reds and oranges and somehow makes it work.

    Just last night I was looking at some George Inness paintings and realized that's where Charles Weed got his inspiration for those tree paintings from. Inness has some tree paintings that are just like the one you shared :)

  •  Savchenko does it for me. Beautiful!

  • @tassieguy Are you familiar with Savchenko's work? Check him out online - he paints for the season. Every fall he paints amazing fall scenes, then the same for the winter, spring and summer.. and then seems to repeat this every year. He's the man!

    Thanks, @CJD. I'll definately check him out. The two @anwesha posted are stunning. Exquisitely painterly! It's the sort of landscape realism I can only dream of achieving.  :)

  • Beautiful paintings!

    After googling these artists I like Carlo Russo and Alexey Savchenko's artwork.

    P.s. Should this thread be called 'look upon these works, and despair'?

    Why despair? Jump out of the chair as if your bottom is on fire and some boiled linseed oil rubbed onto it!  :p We must paint our best everyday and one day someone from us will be on that list. Seems impossible? Pressure and deadline are the keys to excellence :)

  • @anwesha   I love the last one the best
  • @anwesha I now have to take a closer look at Alexey Savchenk, those paintings are amazing.

    I see you like Katie Whipple too.

    She is painting floral still lifes now but here is one of her paintings I have of hers from when she was studying at that school.

  • That's a great portrait to own
  • I guess my favourites change over time, here are some that I have been into over the past few years. I do also love other artists works that are not just still life :-)

    Paul Coventry Brown



    Cindy Procious



    Christopher Gallego




    Rory McEwan
    (This is actually a watercolour, which I find incredible)

  • I would have named Constable+Turner, Monet, Kuindzhi, Kandinski and SargZorn but there are many others like Pollock, Cezanne, Renoir plus some Indian artists. 

    But here are some modern guys that I like on technical grounds:

    Jeremy Lipking


    Pramod Kurlekar

  • I agree @JessicaArt, it helps us see how beautiful those every day things around us are.

    Makes me feel like walking into those rooms.
  • Agree with @MichaelD. The personality of this space is very intimate and invites the viewer.
