What cha think of Flint?

Postby eganj1 » Fri Mar 05, 2010 3:44 pm

What do you think of the work of William Russell Flint.
i think his watercolours are amazing, they look effortless but if you have ever painted with watercolour you know how difficult this is.
I can see Degas and Alma Tadema influences or is that just me?

My only criticisim is some of the ladies look a bit masculine in their build, maybe he overemphasised the muscles to give strength of form deliberately, and the ladies look like they have implants ;yikes2; whatever i think they are amazing paintings and would like to read your views, i like to be able to weild a watercolour brush like him. I've been pining to paint wc recently ;artist;

Hi Jill.. well he's won me I'm in love....the movement of the females is a wonder to behold and I love the way he does the walls of rock...I'd not come across his work before...but I'll be visiting his site again.. Thanks so much for the info... after doing a willow type pattern & roses and an oil landscape I'm kinda hankering to go back to the freer style of watercolour myself...Good luck with your move.. sounds like it couls be a great place to live for a bit...I'm sure your active little brain will soon have it looking like you...calling your brain is a bit of an oxymoron tho Jole

Hi Jole nice to hear from you, I'm pleased you like his paintings, they are so fresh.
I was just looking at Willow pattern yesterday, i love blue and white china, especially Spode Italian ware, which I used to collect before the factory closed down. Anyway the 2 plates i saw yesterday were a modern take on wp, one had modern modes of transport added to it, like aeroplanes, the other has oil rigs or something like that, I wish I had bookmarked them now, at first glance you thoguht they were just the usual wp plates

I too love his work and have a few of his prints which I purchased many years ago. I still get endless pleasure from them, they all are so peaceful yet so strong.
