art online as a means of showing the world his figurative paintings,
as well as the opportunity for art lovers to buy a painting directly from
the web site has played a large part in John's enthusiasm for figurative
paintings over the last number of years.
"Rhapsody in Red" is just one romantic idea from his online
figurative art gallery.This image is one of a series of romantic pictures
which studies the impact of a red glow abstract background, red sheets,
dark passages, and direct studio lighting on the female modelwho is suffused
with colour. Other figure studies from the series,"Lady in Red"
may be viewed at John's online figurative art gallery.
