Artists I Admire

Gerald Harvey Jones Painting

Listed here are some of my most favorite artists. I study their work almost everyday before I begin painting. I find that just observing a painting over and over again, eventually turns a light on in my head in no other way reading a book does.

I do study many good books, like Richard Schmid’s Alla Prima, along with the companion book which goes into great detail on his painting methods. Although I have yet to take a live workshop by one of these artists, I have studied online for the past couple of years with instruction from Richard Robinson from New Zealand and Johannes H. Vloothuis from Canada.

Next year in 2016, I plan on traveling to New Mexico to study under John Poon. I take my art very seriously and endeavor to excel with practice, study and expert instruction.
