...about Jeff Hayes. For light, colour, technical ability, charm of subject matter, and form. His paintings delight me. He is also generous with tips and his movies of the process and progress of his paintings are, not only helpful to me as an artist, but works of art in their own right.
Here is the movie of the above painting and another called 'The Captive', of a lemon in a jar. I currently have that latter image on my desktop, I like it so much.
You can see his daily blog, that discusses process, background and influences.
