On My Easel – 1959 Chevrolet Biscayne – 28th September 2018

Chev Biscayne Tail end
1959 Chevrolet Biscayne

In the late 1950’s American car manufacturers were big into flashy tail fins. I suppose it was a sign of a booming world economy which had recovered from the effects of WW II. All three of the major manufacturer – General Motors, Ford and Chrysler were busy trying to outdo each other. Some designs were really good and others a bit weird. By the early 1960’s the fashion passed and automobiles again became quite boring. The 1957 Chevrolet range quite possibly had the best looking of the “finned” models but the most outrageous was the 1959 Chevrolet range. That the designers managed to get it right for cars, wagons and light delivery vehicles was quite an achievement. Here’s my interpretation of the 1959 Chev Biscayne which I’m busy with today.

On My Easel – Wild Flowers – 9th July 2018

Bloom Where You Are Planted - artbybruce - Bruce Andrew

My wife loves walking around on the mountains behind our home amongst the fynbos, proteas and the stunning view across an area known as Ruens. She also loves finding the almost hidden flowers that most other mortals would trample on, or walk past without even noticing.

This acrylic painting of yellow flowers is based on a photo she took one sunny morning. It needs a little work to finish it off, which will be done this week.

On My Easel – Man Walking – May 2018

This oil painting is almost completed. Needs a little bit of work on the top bend in the road and then it should be done. It is inspired by a demonstration painting by Irish artist Stephen Conway. 

He has an easy approach and is one of the few that I have seen who is not afraid to use black to construct his greens.

Size 20 cm x 50 cm

On My Easel – Cape St. Blaize – April 2018

Almost completed portrayal of Cape St. Blaize Lighthouse in Mossel Bay, Western Cape.

One of the projects we are busy with at Art By Bruce right now is a commission for a painting St. Blaize Lighthouse in the beautiful coastal town of Mossel Bay, Western Cape, South Africa. The lighthouse was built in 1864. It is almost 15 meters tall and is approximately 73 meters above sea level.
My interpretation is 42 cm x 60 cm, Oil Painting on Stretched canvas. Watch for the finished work in a week or two.

This one really came out nicely and it’s hanging in it’s new home. You can check it out here Cape St. Blaize Final
