Nearly there!

Painting No.20 for 'The Eternal Now' Theme of paintings, by Anthony Greentree
Painting No.20 for 'The Eternal Now' Theme of paintings, by Anthony Greentree






























Well I am now in the final week before I exhibit at The Carnival of Monsters Art Festival. This latest painting is the 20th and I still have one more to do. I have noticed that each painting I have done along the way seemed to have their own treatment in terms of feel and application. Even though I am emulating the idea of subject and background as one, I feel that each subject seem to be at differing levels of connection to the outer world. The colours in the background for each picture seem to come on while I am painting, as nothing is really planned when I create them.

More paintings for 'The Eternal Now' Exhibition

I have completed two more paintings ready for my exhibition on the 11th - 25th October at the Carnival of Monsters Art Festival in Nottingham. These are more famous people who have very kindly offered themselves as subjects for my painted portraits. 

Painting No.18 'The Eternal Now. Darren Campbell, by Anthony Greentree
The first one is blues guitarist Aynsley Lister, who kindly let me take some reference photos backstage at one of his gigs earlier in the year. 

The second portrait is of Olympic Gold Medalist, Darren Campbell, who I met while doing a Headteachers conference mural in Cardiff. 

Apart from the two more paintings I have yet to complete, I will have 21 paintings altogether to show at the exhibition. I like to think that these are a diverse range from family friends and famous people. I will explain in more detail about the whole concept of these works nearer the time.
