In 1975, Michel Audebert artist's adventure begins. Photographer and plastician, he takes us along in a search towards the beauty or the message is as strong as the image. "Even more than a work on the representation, my research is the expression of the feeling which emanates from the photographed subject ... In my images, the repetition does not have a "hypnotic" goal... The least variation on the subject must modify our perception of it... I have a high idea of Photography as a mode of expression. In a parallel with reality and the time which passes, I regard this one as a major art... It can create the illusion of reality like the impression of stopped time. For me, photography is a formidable instrument of dream and nostalgia. » Here, in some lines, Michel Audebert, photographer and plastician, define and pose the scenery of his creative passion as a means of restoring a reality but more to express to see transcending the beauty of the world which surrounds it.

I now have my jumbo brush. I am so proud of it, its really really beautiful. Again the most amazing point ever for such a large brush.
The pink & purple brushes are made of a synthetic mix and is ideal at holding lots of paint and keeping its shape. This very big brush is ideal for large washes, with a fantastic point to help with detail.
I have a special offer on purchasing a set of 3.
They are available from my web site www.marilynallis.com

A Renaissance Christmas at the RA
Saturday 29 November, 6.30-10pm
|Join us for a festive celebration inspired by our dazzling Giovanni Battista Moroni exhibition (★★★★★ Time Out).|
Be transported back to the Italy depicted in Moroni’s portraits with a night of Renaissance art, music, food, drink and dance. Highlights include magnificent choral performances from The Renaissance Singers, roaming minstrels, Italian folk storytelling and more.
And it’s not just the sights and sounds of the era that we’ll be recreating...
Take part in a themed life drawing session with Art Macabre, have your own portrait sketched beside the RA’s Renaissance treasure – the Taddei Tondo, Britain’s only marble sculpture by Michelangelo, or take a special ‘scent tour’ and discover the perfumes that would have dominated the sensory landscape of the 16th century.
Tickets are £20, and include entrance to the exhibition and a bespoke seasonal cocktail inspired by the flavours of the Renaissance.

Mark Duffin was born and raised in 1960’s rural England. He is a freelance artist and illustrator who has worked across various creative fields. After studying graphic design and illustration at college he embarked on a career in the commercial world working freelance for design consultancies, advertising agencies and publishing companies in the UK and overseas. However, as a versatile artist, he has produced artwork outside of the restrictions and deadlines of the corporate arena. Duffin branched from his digital design work through to creating more personal fine art pieces in oils and acrylics. It is his striking, private paintings of recent times using traditional media that are some of his most inspiring works.
Nature is a key theme in the beautiful paintings he produces today. With a keen eye for detail and expressive use of colour Duffin’s artwork showcases the serenity and mystery of nature. However, his vibrant pieces go far beyond simply representing picturesque scenery, instead they display an intense and almost magical realm. His vivid creations draw the viewer in to an enchanting world, evoking a sense of calm and transporting our minds to a peaceful, spirited time and place.
Darney paints large scale canvases with bold invented color - lyrical and very expressive color passages of natural images viewed so very close up only part of the external contours of the particular images are seen. He doesn't use the internal natural details normally seen with such a view.
Currently Darney is painting flower images, mainly from the iris flower. These images are meant to be something other than visual illusions or mimics of iris flowers - they are intended to be metaphors or doorways into visual, emotional, and sometimes even spiritual journeys - into flowerscapes of peace, order, beauty, and unity. They are metaphors of the human condition, of the magnificent yet fragile nature of our humanity and our constant dependence on our Creator for inspiration, protection, nurturing, and restoration. He realizes humans are capable of extremely ugly horrible cruel things also, which is worth addressing in paint as well. Presently his work is both a joyful celebration of living, having purpose on this earth, and bearing fruit and also addressing issues that arise on the earth from mankind leaving an intimate relationship with our Creator and thus mismanaging our stewardship of the earth.
