Hope no one minds an oil painter posting here, but, I came across this site and HAD to share it with you all. I was amazed at what this guy can do! Almost makes me want to try water colors! *lol* http://www.esllimited.com/Hanks/steve_hanks.htm

I agree! I have been a fan of Hanks since buying a calendar with his work more than 5 years ago. His site is blocked by my internet service provider though (the nudes of course). sad. Oh well, there is always the library - when nobody is looking. LOL.

Steve Hanks has been my "mentor" of sorts for many years now...the people who sell his paintings (galleries)..have crowds waiting in line to buy. I am told every show is a total sell out, and I can see why. http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/smile.gif Carol

I find it hard to believe that these are done in watercolours.

These are really wonderful....now... does anyone know Steve....if so, couldn't we get him to join wetcanvas and do a lesson for us?

Well, it was just a thought.

Thanks for the link, has gone on my favourites list.

Yes, that guy is good. You would be very surprised the depth of realism watercolour allows and how quickly. Watercolour was my last medium to try and I generally prefer it for its glowing richness. Oils are grea too. Acrylic I love but it is so much skill dry brushing and it takes me awhile to finally get an area right. Skin tones are much harder to get sometimes with acrylic.
Thansk for the link!

Can I be honest ? I believe you that this artist is popular in the USA, must be competition to Mr. Kinkade ... but I can't find the soul in his work and I think the nudes will have great success in magazines like Playboy etc. ...

but he is talented

Of course he is talented (maybe in business too). Anyway, I am glad I am not alone with my opinion.

I think your man has a very similiar style to Kinkade - but the whole site [ collection of artists are very talented and produce great images.

He doe very nice work. But too representational for my taste. Have to agree with Gilberte.
