Bill Barrell has been painting for over 50 years and has a full portfolio of art, numerous awards, shows and reviews under his belt. At age 77, he wants to share his ideas and his wisdom through a blog on the creation of art.
The blog will strive to answer questions such as – Where does an idea for a painting come from? Do you sketch your idea out beforehand? What kind of prep do you do before you put brush to canvas? What paints and brushes do use and why? When you have a blank canvas in front of you, where do you begin? When the painting is complete, how is it stretched?
Mr. Barrell will also consider less practical subjects like – how does an artist see life and reality – why is he compelled to paint – what artists does he admire and appreciate?
These questions and many more will be addressed when Barrell begins his blog on “The Painting: from beginning to end.” Look for it soon.
