The Children of China

This is a short video I created that depicts my concept of painting a series of images based on a theme.  in this theme, The Children of China, my intent was to depict the spirit and subtle passion of children in the countryside in modern China.  Using an impressionist and colorist approach I place the viewer in the position of dwelling on the children, imagining what their inner world is truly about.  I choose to not overtly communicate "passion" but rather, allow the viewer to "be there"…

Don't Handcuff Yourself!

Trying to be too literal will handcuff your efforts and almost guarantee a poor painting.



This is a very common misstep by outdoor painters. Especially in plein air where the objects you’re painting are right in front of you. Their immediacy almost demands you render them as they are. And, you’re being instructed to carefully observe the subtleties of local color, temperatures, reflected light and intensities. Nonetheless, resist slavishly duplicating your subject or you’re in…

“It’s Just Paint and Canvas” By Rick J. Delanty , 2015

“It’s Just Paint and Canvas”

2015

By Rick J. Delanty

   What is the true” market value” of a painting? How does a potential collector know that a fair price is being offered? After all, the price can be negotiated…It’s not like a car, a stereo system, or a suit jacket that contains technical components and can be shopped between stores. It’s only paint and canvas, right?

Maybe this is because we think if we can nail down a detail, we can build the rest of the painting around it. There are so many things to consider we feel overwhelmed and think this bit…
