On a short holiday break I learned about Otto Pankok ((1893-1966), a German “charcoal painter”, and his daughter Eva. In the hotel we stayed I enjoyed a permanent exhibit of large plein air oil paintings done by Eva Pankok between 1972 and 2009 in Provence (slide show). Unfortunately there are not many good images of [...]

Who Knows – what Kurt is doing.
On the weekend we visited the art fair at Karlsruhe. I was very much surprised and pleased to see works of one of my absolute favorite artists in drawing and to meet the artist Namgoong Whan in person. I had admired his drawings on the web for some time already. Unfortunately the personal website was [...]
Thanks to Drawing allowed I was introduced to the work of Kurt Jackson. Sometimes it seems that there is no chance for the new or fresh but then you stumble on something again that leaves a deep impression and makes for a source of inspiration.

George Rowlett is one of my favorite plein air painters. His Gallery has put up two videos showing the artist at work painting on the Outer Hebrides and East Kent earlier in March this year. In an older interview the artists said that he tries to paint as fast as he can. If you compare [...]
Today I want to point out to artist Mara Korkola and her small winter landscapes. The format is modest, but somehow the views she paints seem bigger. The presentation in triptych might give to that effect, but does not explain it in full. I like the clarity and stillness in these images which I have seen so [...]
Unfortunately I can’t remember where and how I found this film and the portfolio of the artist Alice Shirley. The artist does amazing ink drawings.
