The March/April challenge of The Artists Journal is devoted to imaginative portray and magical realism. The include and lead short article aspect the gorgeous painting by James Gurney shown in the photos previously mentioned, and a stage-by of his process in making it.
I’ve experienced the satisfaction of observing this certain portray in particular person, and it is a strikingly beautiful case in point of Gurney at his greatest in combining the variations of the Victorian painters with contemporary fantasy subjects. (Imagine if you will, Lawrence Alma-Tadema painting dinosaurs!)
This is a quite good situation of a very good journal. Unfortunately, the Artists Community web page, for causes that elude me, is not quite powerful in marketing the bodily journal. (They never evidently affiliate the go over with a checklist of contents and excerpts particular to that problem, and from there backlink to the ordering site.)
If you are privileged enough to have a bookstore in your area that carries a rather broad array of journals, you might nonetheless be in a position to obtain a duplicate.
You can also access Gurney’s posting, entire with photos, on the internet if you’re ready to give them your email tackle. You can link to the post from this website page, and at the time on this website page, enter your e mail deal with and you will have instant entry to the article.
The whole situation (and the magazine in basic), are worthwhile.
James Gurney was a specially appropriate artist to faucet for this issue, supplied that he’s the creator of an fantastic e book devoted to the subject: Imaginative Realism: How to Paint what Does not Exist (Lines and Colours critique below).
