Thank you for listening to this episode of the Podcast. EPISODE 12 SHOW NOTES: Date: 14/04/19 Summary of Topics of the show covered: Catching a chatter with Visual Artist and Art Tutor Nelson Ferreira Fine Artist and Educator Nelson Ferreira has a keen interest in painting traditions from other cultures and times, having specialised in old European master’s techniques (Flemish oil painting and Baroque oil techniques) and has travelled parts of the world to take courses in Russian and Greek iconography, Turkish Marbling (Ebru), Indian miniature (Mughal style) and Chinese painting. Since 2005 he has taught painting classes in London for numerous illustrious corporations and specialises in portraiture, having exhibited in the UK, Canada and Portugal. His style has been influenced by the dramatic chiaroscuro of Caravaggio and Zurbarán also loving the fine details of Dürer, the expressive line of Ingre’s graphite drawings, the sculptural paintings of Théodore Géricault and Solomon J. Solomon, the flesh tones of Bouguereau, the play of light of Ivan Aivazovsky, the intimacy in Mary Cassatt’s pastels of mother and child; also the colour of Sorolla, the expressiveness of Nicolai Fechin, Winslow Homer and Isaac Levitan as well as the brush strokes of John Singer Sargent and Anders Zorn. ‘Crisis shall come and we must be ready for them, every creative person has moments of doubt…. when that doubt comes see it as a potential breakthrough for you to push yourself in order to develop and become better’ Nelson Ferreira Product of the week: Shiseido YANE HAKE Precision Eye brush – Cult beauty Precise, chiselled and seriously good-looking, Shiseido’s YANE HAKE Precision Eye Brush is handcrafted in Japan to add revolutionary craftsmanship to your collection.
