  • Royal Albert Hall

    I’m always been attracted to fine, beautifully designed buildings. Painting them means that you end up looking much more intensely to their architectural features and appreciating them all the more. I first painted the Royal Albert Hall, London in 2005 and sold the original watercolour to a famous opera singer. I recently decided to paint […] The post Royal Albert Hall appeared first on Alan Reed'...

    The 22nd February 2017 is World Encephalitis Day, the global awareness day for people who are directly or indirectly affected by encephalitis. I had no idea what encephalitis was until Sarah was diagnosed. I’d watched Sarah grow up from being a little girl for over 20 years so I was deeply shocked to hear of her illness.

  • Painting on Gold Leaf

    I first started painting on gold leaf in 2009 when I was working on a large painting commission. As part of the project I worked on some small boards about 19″x 15″ which were primed with gold leaf. I used these to produce some experimental paintings, one of which was a portrait of my wife Susan. […] The post Painting on Gold Leaf appeared first on Alan Reed's Painting Blog.

  • San Gimignano

    Susan and I first visited San Gimignano in February 1999.

  • The Artist

    21. My style really began to develop when I was an art student. It improved through my desire to become a better watercolourist. More than ever, I am always seeking to improve my skills and to become the artist I’m meant to be. 22. I find that I’ve learned to know when to stop.

I’m regularly asked questions by art students about my working methods and how I started off as an […] The post The Artist appeared first on Alan Reed's Painting Blog.
