Royal Paintbox - a very interesting look at art and British Royalty

His Royal Highness Prince Charles stands for lots of things I find interesting and believe in.
The preservation of the rural landscape and historical buildings.
Maintaining a sustainable agriculture program.
And art.
He is a very accomplished painter himself, and in this video he helps explore art through the Royal Family.
A lot of talent hidden in there.
It also looks at how art was once very important in education and how it was very important before the age of film.

I just love his plein air stuff!

James Gurney, illustrator, artist, Dinotopia creator.
His Dinotopia books are an incredible display of his studio talent.
But I just love these two pieces of work he did outside.

Although I love each, I really love how the Red Cabin feels like it is a cloudy damp day. The brown on the wood deck makes it look like a rain shower is just passed.
