    Lennart Anderson over at JSS 

    There is a nice post about Lennart Anderson over at The Jerusalem Studio School’s blog.

    “For me, painting from nature is akin to playing music. The notes are there. One tries to get them down in the proper proportion to bring out the impression…Though one is drawn to see more subtly, subtlety often develops as the enemy of the large effect of the motif. The major changes in value are constantly eaten away by the awareness that the darks are being qualified by the pervasive light that is a component of the scene. This is a phenomenon noticed by comparing the motif at a distance of perhaps eight to ten feet. Contrasts are easily seen and darks seem strong but at closer distances it is apparent that light is seeping into them. My effort is to do justice to this problem, to achieve a balance between these opposite effects.” Lennart Anderson

    Interview with Gideon Bok 

    There is a really great interview with Gideon Bok over at the Painting Perceptions Blog. It gives some interesting insights into his process, what the paintings seem to be about, etc. Even though there are slightly different things going on, his studio condition reminds me a little bit of Ben Cowan’s. The paintings seem to be about the passage of time and the shuffling of objects in the studio.

    For those that haven’t seen it, Gideon Bok also writes a blog where he posts paintings in progress. It’s interesting to see how they devolope. Check that out here: http://gideonbok.blogspot.com/
