• Virgil Elliott knows traditional oil painting, in fact, he wrote the book on it! It was a few years ago that I stumbled upon his book "Traditional Oil Painting" and read through, I quickly realised that there were many things I didn't know about my own profession; in fact there were many things I was doing in the studio that were causing irreversible harm to the paintings I had painstakingly crafted. Reading Virgil's book, and then joining the private Facebook page by the same name, represented a paradigm shift in my work. Virgil's teachings fundamentally changed the way I approach painting. In this conversation I wanted to revisit some of the themes we discussed way back in episode 2, when we spoke last, and pick up where we left off. This episode is one to keep coming back to: have a notebook handy!

    Chris Fornataro AKA Paint Coach is an inspiring artist and content creator based in Massachusetts in the United States. I've been watching his Youtube videos for a long while, following his online journey from just a few subscribers to now 200 thousand - no small feat! Chris has an interesting background and had previously explored a few disciplines. Early on, he was an aspiring college footballer, playing at a high level, simultaneously with a background in theater and a passion for painting, it would be hard to put a label on him. Turns out these different avenues have helped him excel on his creative journey. I wanted to ask about those early years where he was up and coming and how he found himself and became Paint Coach.

I loved hearing Joe's story and what has shaped him as an artist over the years, from his humble beginnings to his experiences with galleries and teaching.

His work has been featured on the covers of Der Spiegel, Newsweek and Mad Magazine and his art is highly sought after by private collectors worldwide. You may remember Thomas from earlier episodes of The Creative Endeavour. I just had to get him back on the podcast, not only to hear what he's been up to over the last year, but to discuss an incredibly interesting book that ought to be on your radar: "The Billion Dollar Painter" by Eric Kuskey. This book focused on the life of Thomas Kincade and as Fluharty puts it: "it's a story from rags to riches to ruin." We reflect on the incredible life and career trajectory of this often misunderstood artist and some of the lessons therein. This was a super inspiring chat, not to be missed!

Initially Anthony struggled and felt like things were a bit hopeless and opportunities weren't forthcoming in his homeland.

That was 11 years ago, now Anthony works full time as a digital painter/illustrator and recently celebrated receiving a massive gig with a household name company that featured his graphics.

  • Daniel Bilmes is a portrait artist based in LA in the United States. His work is unlike anything I've seen. He creates portraits in oils that look as though they've been stitched together like embroidery. How often can we say that there's a unique approach to painting? Perhaps Daniel has found that unique form of expression? We not only talked about the technical side of painting, giving me an opportunity to geek out on some new colours and approaches, but we took a dive into Daniel's past and learned about his origins, teaching at his father's art school from the age of 15... This conversation even covered ground on the education system at large and how important early influences are.

In this podcast we talked about many things from Lubomir's beginnings to his current projects and what inspires him today. Lubomir created "In Shadow" a short 13 minute film exploring the nature of reality and the society in which we live.
