Ruins Project – Update

I have now started work on my new project which I announced last week, you can see that post by Clicking Here.

For this project, I will be publishing the artwork that I create in parts and in between the parts containing the artwork will be written pieces about relevant artists or pieces relative to the theme of Ruins.

I will be publishing the first written piece next week, looking at some of the beautiful artwork of Francis Towne, a little known artist who traveled to Rome in the 18th century and painted some beautiful watercolour landscapes of the scenery of the old Empire’s capital.

Throughout the course of the project I will look at a variety of people who have captured the charm and beauty of the ancient world through different media as well as those who have incorporated it into imaginary scenes, such as I intend to do.

So until next week, take care!
