CHARLES WILLIAMS’ MUSINGS

Manet and Cézanne

I love Manet, always have. I love A Bar at the Folies-Bergère, the Déjeuner sur l’herbe, The Luncheon. I am prepared to follow the wilder excesses of his stylistic experimentations too, because I trust him. There’s a lovely portrait of his friend Carolus-Duran in the Barber Institute at Birmingham University, which seems unfinished, but somehow I want to look again and again at it. I know he knows what he’s up to. I love his deep, insatiable interest in the texture, light and colours of the world he lived in, the clarity of his vision; I read Zola quite a bit as a young man, and I think Manet gives you more than Zola, you get more of an idea of that world.

About The Artist

Welcome to our December issue. This month consultant editor and acclaimed professional artist David Curtis reveals his approach to painting a recent portrait of his son, while Kathy Barker explains what to look for when painting lips in the second of her series on portraiture in oils. Amanda Hyatt shows how to simplify complex interiors and Paul Weaver advises on the colours to use and mix to create atmospheric greys to capture winter scenes in watercolour. Newcomers to pastel will enjoy the first in Robert Brindley's new three-part series on pastel techniques and landscape demonstration, Soraya French and Robert Dutton suggest myriad creative ideas for working in mixed media to paint flowers and expressive landscapes and Geoff Hunt and Michele Del Campo share how they work up a painting in the studio in different media and very different ways. Cover artist Bob Brandt shows why pattern is so important, while Richard Pikesley, Paul Brown, Charles Williams and Paul Talbot-Greaves all share their ideas to inspire your artistic development. Enjoy your painting with The Artist this month!
