Inspired by National Portrait Gallery's BP Portrait Award and the theme of family in several winning entries, Art Macabre present a clan of curious characters to capture in your own portraits. A macabre circus family pose together in a series of tableaux.
Artists currently showing work at the BP Portrait Award will be visiting Cass Art stores throughout August to talk about their work, inspiration, painting techniques and answer all your portraiture questions.
Here are three artistic disciplines that celebrate art done differently. The plein air (“in the open air”) tradition became particularly prominent in the 19th century and was adopted by many British artists - think Sir William Coldstream, John Constable and Samuel Palmer. But the plein air discipline continues today.
As part of our Meet the Artists programme Teri Anne Scoble will be joining us at the Kingston and Charing Cross stores this August to talk about her art, painting processes, portraits and answer your questions.
