Portobello Promenade

Hi Welcome to the Ryan Evans Painting Blog!

Well this is my first post in the brave new world of blogging- please bear with me as I don't have a clue about how this all works yet!

As an artist I'm mostly self-taught though I try to attend night classes and workshops whenever possible- there's always something new to learn.

Coming from Scotland I have no shortage in beautiful scenery around to inspire me. My main passion in art is landscape, but to constantly keep me improving and sharpen my skills, I tackle other subjects- still life, portraits and figurative works. I paint mostly oils, but dabble with other mediums such as pen & ink, pencil, pastel and acrylic.

Over the coming weeks I plan to add to the blog with new paintings, drawing and projects. This will allow those interested in my work to follow me on my journey as I hope to progress as an artist. I'll try to give an insight into the work and techniques behind the paintings as well as some information about what inspired me about the scene in the first place. I also hope that in the near future I will be able provide access for anyone interested to purchase or commission work- This is something I'm looking into at present.

Anyway enough blethering from me- I thought the best thing me me to do is post a picture to get started. This was the first painting!
