I have never heard of Herbert Morton Stoops but these illustrations are amazing.
Clyde Aspevig: High in the Wind River Range
This landscape painting by Clyde Aspevig is extremely inspirational.
For years I have looked at Richard Schmid’s work with hopes that one day I could be as masterful. So I find it fitting that as I start a new inspiration category on my blog that Richard Schmid be the first.
There are very few living master artists out there and he is one of them. The more I look at current work by artists all over the internet I constantly see more and more influence from Schmid. If I could only have one book in my library of art books it would be “Alla Prima”. Now in its second edition with expanded content I consider it to be the most concise and informative piece of literature that every student of art should own. Currently I’m in the process of re-reading it for the third time.
Below is a few images that I pulled from the internet so I may return to this page on days when I need a bit of motivation or inspiration to get going.
Probably the best-known student of William Coldstream, Euan Uglow stands out as one of the most important figurative painters of the late 20th century. Arguably it is Uglow and Freud who dominated the late 20th century figurative painting and influenced countless artists.

Wow, Kim Jung-Gi
Amazing artist Kim Jung-Gi in a 75 minute video, thank you James Gurney for posting it.
Clyde Aspevig is a contemporary landscape painter with truly inspiring images.
William Wendt (1865-1946) was an American landscape painter. He was called the “Dean of Southern California landscape painters.
Jeremy Lipking is the same age as me. His paintings are amazing, I wonder if I had not stopped if I could be painting as good as him? Good thing I don’t live in the past 🙂
I found Karin Jurick through a random link online. She did a series called “Bust-ed” consisting of 100 faces from mug shots. The paintings are simple, tiny and amazingly playful.
John White Alexander
The influence of illustration can bee seen in John White Alexanders painting. Their smooth and flowing compositions are quite relaxing.
Simply amazing. Jeremy Mann is a great example of an artist whose skills I would love to have and I’m current working towards.
Born in Fife, Scotland in 1951, Jack Vettriano left school at sixteen to become a mining engineer. For his twenty-first birthday, a girlfriend gave him a set of watercolour paints and, from then on, he spent much of his spare time teaching himself to paint.
Frank W. Benson
Thanks to my later years in college I have a soft spot for 19th century american painters.
Joaquín Sorolla, one of the great painters from Spain. His work has always amazed me.
Mostly known for his images of cakes but I really liked his landscapes.
I found Joseph Alleman online yesterday his work captures breathtaking landscapes with such simple virtuosity.
I can’t think of a better place to store art that influences me than here on my blog. This post is all about the amazing Malcolm T. Liepke.
