When I started trying to promote my own artwork online I kept coming across other people's art that amazed or compelled me in one way or another. This blog has been a way for me to practice thinking and writing about art, as well as learning more about my peers and all the incredible art that is being made out there.

Nancy Depew

Tight realism that the artist claims are NOT from life but rather, evolve in the process of painting without preconception. She does use photo reference as a starting point but as the painting progresses the gathering gloom of the forest that gradually emerges is very much her own creation. She also does some very amazing flowers though I have to admit they don't compel me nearly so much as these depictions of the dark within the forest.
