Inspiration List

This is my absolute “go-to” list for learning and inspiration. I immerse myself in it and try to get into the minds of the master painters. I hope it’ll help you as well.

I also Google images for Richard Schmid (his website doesn’t show many paintings)

For learning how to paint figures, I often refer to Vladimir Volgov (Google images)

Vladimir Volegov - Tutt'Art@ (31)

Ken Knight:  An amazing Australian plein air artist that paints big outdoors (rare).  ( YouTube videos: The first two on the list are great!)

Frank Serrano: He does landscapes often with a western theme. Most of his work can be found on Instagram (@urbanbrush), not his website.

Shawn Cornell: His ability to convey emotion through brushwork of the Missouri prairies en plein air is amazing. (link to YouTube show of his work)
