Quick on The Draw
Over the Christmas and New Year holiday I came across this website about an artist from Oregon, US, called Cathleen Rehfeld. http://crehfeld.blogspot.co.uk
Do take a look if you have a moment to spare – her paintings are full of vitality, colour, bold brushwork and an absolute joy of rendering images quickly and accurately. Her subject matter is – well, everything really - and she paints daily, any subject that excites her.
I just love her brushwork and the confidence borne of what I think is a sound knowledge of underlying draughtsmanship. Scroll down the subjects listed at the lower right hand side of her blog page – lots of ideas that show how just about anything can be interpreted into a glorious painting.
We might try a Club session of speed painting – anyone up for that?
