John Stuart Pryce has given Recherché permission to post and send out his personal art newsletter. John is Martin Pryce’s brother, and has a resumé longer than my arm. There is a short writing about him in one of my earlier blogs if you are interested in learning more about him. Anyways, his Newsletter contains stories and lessons about fine art and painting. I will periodically post and send them out from his archive. If you enjoy them and learn from them as an artist, please check his website out and thank him for the free information. This section of Recherché’s Newsletter is more focused on art lessons than news, so if you are an artist then these will be of particular interest to you, if you aren’t an artist, then the news focused letters will be more of interest.
Here is the his first letter from the past:
March 15, 2011 – No. 1
|I am pleased to launch and introduce my new newsletter to you and your members.The content of forthcoming interactive newsletters will have art related questions, quotes and anecdotes, which will hopefully be of interest to artists of all mediums.It will also have information on my upcoming workshops and other activities.
I look forward to keeping in touch with everyone.
Today’s Topic – “The Robin’s Are Back”
The Robin’s are back! What does that mean to us as painters? Well it means that there will be footprints in the spring mud and snow up north made by the dedicated group of plein-air painters taking advantage of that very short but beautiful prelude to the warm weather.We will hopefully have the good fortune of warm sunny days before the bugs take over; the broken silence of winter with bird songs and the sounds of rushing water.
I am showing a small painting that I did last spring on one of those precious days. A few phone calls and e-mails, and we will be heading north as the weather improves.
Stay in touch and I will be sending reports of the trips. Keep those brushes clean and ready to go!
