Ham Radio op G4YDM- What is my Art all about?Ham Radio op G4YDM- What is my Art all about? Artist John Allsopp What is my Art all about? We all do something for a reason and as an artist, I am doing no different than anyone else, so why do I take photographs of trees, or rivers, people dogs? the reason I took this picture is quite simple I am going to use it as a reference for a later painting.
None of us can remember the enormous amount of detail in a moment in time photographs are used by many artists as a form of reference, many sketches of this scene will not provide the amount of reference present in a photo.
What is the work of artist John Allsopp all about?
Quite simply to capture a scene, in this case, a seascape in as near perfect detail as I possibly can, my art style is realism, I want people to instantly recognize where, and what the painting is about.
For those who don't know South Shields in Tyne-Wear, the picture shows a ferry vessel leaving the river and heading out towards the North Sea.
I have painted people in a highly realistic manner, they are easily recognized, I personally get a huge amount of satisfaction when people talk about my work as being beautiful.
