Andrew Wyeth and Jamie Wyeth Portraits

ANDREW WYETH portrait I am doing a series of portraits of the Wyeths starting with Andrew. Andrew Wyeth is a major reason I chose to go into art. Next up is Jamie Wyeth.


I am doing a series of portraits of the Wyeths starting with Andrew. Andrew Wyeth is a major reason I chose to go into art. His spare style and powerful compositional sense is without peer in represenational art.
This is my concept for a book cover feasturing Andrew Wyeth's story.
Andrew Wyeth always had a sense of drama. His father N. C. Wyeth created some of the most dramatic works of illustration in the first half of the 20th Century.
I love to experiment with making different brushes for textural effects. This is particularly helpful in channeling Andrew Wyeth's own use of texture in his tempera paintings.
Jamie is a close second to his father as a source of inspiration to me. I felt that I should do  a set of portraits so this is the result. 
This portrait was a study in Jamie Wyeth's technique. I find his oil paintings to be remarkable for their ability to create a sense of fantasy and drama while portraying such ordinary subjects.
 
Jamie Wyeth has become an equally powerful inspiration for me. His work in oil paint is unique and his use of color is extraordinary.
