    Brilliant Bloom by Caroline Ashwood

    Early years

    Caroline was born in 1970 just as the swinging sixties was dying out and the era of disco and flared jeans was just beginning. She was born in Yorkshire, England which is known for its beautiful rural areas, bustling towns and quaint villages. It was the colourful and lively scenery that first inspired some of Caroline’s earliest paintings and drawings. Even at such a young age, it became clear to herself and her parents that she had a passion and a natural talent for art. She would spend hours painting and sketching every chance she got and was always looking for inspiration in nature.

    It was the local Bluebell Woods where Caroline would spend her days exploring and sketching the natural beauty she discovered. The leaves, flowers and bright natural colours were what inspired her to first put pencil to paper. It was this instinctive passion for creativity and observation that made her realise that she wanted to enter the world of art and improve her talents.

    Training

    Her first step towards an exciting career in art came when Caroline received formal training as a graphic designer. In this role, she got a real taste of working within the industry and got a chance to learn from talented professionals. She was able to get hands-on experience and increase her passion and creative side while improving her technical skills. After that, she moved on to work for the renowned advertising agency, M&C Saatchi among others. This was a unique opportunity that allowed Caroline to work with some of the best artists in the business. However, she eventually left after finding her true calling.

    Career painter

    During her time working in the graphic design industry, Caroline was able to cultivate a following thanks to her unique and creative work. After receiving a lot of praise and selling a number of her original pieces, she decided to become a full-time painter in 2002. This allowed her to focus completely on her work and get back to her roots. She opened up a studio in her home of Yorkshire where she was once again able to let the natural scenery inspire her to create colourful and vibrant artwork.

    Throughout her career, Caroline has developed a global network of collectors and buyers. In addition to hundreds of homes, her work can be seen in a number of galleries around the world. Her paintings have also been featured in various shows and award ceremonies over the years where they have captured the attention of the biggest names in the business.

    Style and process

    What sets Caroline’s work apart from others is the vibrant and visceral style that creates a sense of excitement and gives life to the canvas. When talking about her work, Caroline explains how she relies on her instincts to create spontaneous pieces that reflect her internal passion in addition to the inspiration she gets from her surroundings. The abstract style of her work is truly unique and is a reflection of her natural ability to express herself through her art.

    As you browse through her collection of paintings, you’ll see that there is a consistent vibrancy throughout all of them but there are a variety of different styles and subject matter. Caroline’s love for nature is evident in all of her work, from ocean-inspired pieces to paintings that follow a theme of flowers and plants. The liveliness of her paintings will add colour and excitement to any room or gallery.

  • Top 10 Artwork Trends for 2018

    picture 2

    The art world is always changing, constantly evolving with each passing year and bringing more and more interesting and evocative trends to the forefront of the art industry. It is now 2018, and as such the world of art is moving in a new direction, with a range of exciting new trends that will set out to break the mould, inspire artists and encourage a broader variety of artwork being created on a daily basis.

    This year, the art world will see an eclectic mix of popular trends come to the forefront. From masterful monochrome to simplistic line drawings, brilliant brights, images of the powerful woman, Japanese-inspired art and beautifully muted florals, this rich selection of trends makes for a very exciting year for art.

    No matter what your preferred style of art is, there is something for absolutely everyone to enjoy in this year’s artwork trends, from the incredibly simplistic to the bright and bold. Read on to find out more about the top ten artwork trends for 2018.

    Simplicity

    Simplistic line drawings and prints are becoming more and more popular. These simple designs, often of people, flowers or animals, are so versatile and look great on display in any home. They celebrate the elegance of simplicity and are often influenced by the likes of Matisse and Picasso.

    Brilliant Brights

    In a stark contrast to the simplistic drawings mentioned above, another trend for 2018 is brilliant brights. Bright, bold hues that scream for attention are set to grace our walls this year, combined with abstract florals and shapes. Inspired by 80s brights, these pieces are forecast to be a real statement, talking point works of art that you simply will not be able to tear your eyes away from.

    Metallic Highlights

    Artwork featuring mixed metals is also very much on trend for 2018, with the use of gold leaf and metallic accents becoming increasingly popular. These work best with more abstract pieces, adding dimension and texture to the artwork. Popular metals used in such artwork include silver, gold and copper.

    The Powerful Woman

    As 2017 saw women break through the silence with the ‘Me Too’ movement, speaking openly and challenging many of the issues in our society, it makes perfect sense that one of the trends for artwork in 2018 has got to be female empowerment. These pieces of art celebrate the powerful woman and absolutely everything she stands for.

    Sage, Celery & Avocado Hues

    Earthy sage, celery and avocado tones are also trending in the art world for 2018. These natural, earthy hues work well in botanical prints and whilst they are a world away from Pantone’s 2017 colour of the year ‘Greenery’, a bright lime green, they continue to demonstrate the power and versatility of the colour green. They invoke a sense of warmth and give off a cosy vibe when used within the home.

    Relaxed Florals

    Florals will always be popular in the world of art, but for 2018 it’s all about toned-down, muted, florals. Think water colour florals, simple line drawings of flowers and moody, toned-down photographs. These relaxed florals invoke a sense of calm and serenity, and work well in the home without becoming too distracting.

    Monochrome

    Monochrome photography has always been popular, however it makes a big comeback this year, with black and white fashion photography being a big hit in particular. Sophisticated black and white portraits compliment modern homes perfectly, often including famous icons such as Kate Moss, Brigitte Bardot or Sophia Loren.

    Pantone’s Colour of the Year

    For 2018, Pantone’s Colour of the Year is Ultra Violet, a bright, bold blue-based purple hue. As it’s the colour of the year, it is most definitely a trend for 2018, and this somewhat futuristic shade is said to communicate ‘originality, ingenuity and visionary thinking that points us toward the future.’ It works well in jewel-toned artworks and space-themed artworks.

    Graphic Art

    Graphic design has become increasingly popular in the art world and this year is no different. Geometric patterns, graffiti and street-style art are all popular examples of graphic design art that we should see gracing our walls and art galleries throughout the year.

    Wabi Sabi

    Wabi Sabi is a Japanese philosophy, which focuses around and celebrates the beauty of imperfection. Kintsugi, which is the Japanese art of mending broken things with gold, is an example of how Wabi Sabi celebrates these imperfections. So, artwork that demonstrates the beauty of imperfection is set to be big news this year.

    So there you have it – the ten biggest trends in the art world for 2018. This year is set to be a very exciting one for artists and art enthusiasts alike!

  • The Life of an Artist: A Behind-the-Scenes Look at Life as an Artist

    picture 1

    A life as an artist is something many people aspire to. It gives you the opportunity to be free, to work for yourself, create as often as you like and do something you are truly passionate about.

    Whilst every artist is different, there are some similarities all artists share that will give you an insight into what it is like to be an artist and how they spend their time day-by-day. Read on for a behind-the-scenes look at life as an artist.

    Say Goodbye to the 9-5

    For the majority of creatives out there, a 9-5 job simply isn’t appealing. Most artists want the freedom to create on their own terms, which is why a career making art and working for themselves is so attractive. Some artists may keep to a strict working schedule, whereas others might find they are only able to work on their art when creativity strikes them. Some artists will work better at night, whilst others may be early risers, starting work at 5 and finishing for the day by lunchtime. Whilst every artist is different, the thing that applies to the majority of them is that they are free to choose their working hours, and what works best for their creativity.

    Alone Time

    Of course, working as an artist does mean that all of your working time is spent alone. Some people can find artistry a lonely job for this reason, whilst others prefer it is as it gives them the space to get their creative juices flowing. Artists who find their work lonely often have a pet to keep them company throughout the day, or make sure to see friends and family during their lunch break. Some may even work in a shared studio with other artists, to break free from any potential loneliness.

    Gathering Inspiration

    Anyone in the creative field will know that there are times when you simply cannot find the inspiration needed to create your work. Particularly for artists, inspiration is of paramount importance because it, ultimately, is what makes an artist’s work unique. Depending on the type of artwork an artist does, sometimes it is worth them taking a step back, getting out of their comfort zone and becoming re-inspired. Some artists may spend several days devoted to regaining the inspiration for their work, and when inspiration does hit, it’s a valuable moment for an artist.

    Getting Out and About

    In order to get and stay inspired, many artists need to venture outside of their typical studio atmosphere in order to rest their mind, take a break from work and have a change of scenery. Many artists might venture out on their lunch break, while for others (those who paint landscapes, for example) will be regularly out and about in order to fulfil their role as an artist. Some artists even go as far as travelling far and wide in order to gather inspiration for their artwork, so when they return home they have lots of new inspiration to help them create their work.

    Seeing the World a Different Way

    One thing that all artists have in common is their ability to see the world in a different way. It is widely known that creative people see the world inversely to other individuals: they often daydream, people watch, surround themselves with beauty and observe absolutely everything around them. That’s why getting out and about works so well for artists – it gives them the chance to interpret the world their way, observe the things around them and gain inspiration from it.

    Unafraid of Failure

    Many artists are incredibly resilient, and despite facing difficulties or finding themselves failing more than once, they keep on going and working towards their goals. Whilst it can be frustrating for artists when things go wrong, often leading to them needing time to regain the inspiration they have lost, it also helps to strengthen them as artists and helps guide their goals on a daily basis. Many artists will display works they are particularly proud of in their studio to help motivate and inspire them.

    No Two Days Are the Same

    Unlike typical 9-5 office jobs, when you work as an artist, no two days are ever the same. There is always something new to create, new inspiration to gather and new ways of looking at the world. It is a career which never gets boring, as ultimately as an artist you are in control of your day-to-day activities and when and how you choose to spend your time. There is nothing monotonous about art, so as an artist every single day is exciting, varied and often unpredictable.

  • What makes a good painting?

    What makes a good painting? This is a very broad and subjective question that every person, painter and art lover will usually have a different answer to. Ever since drawings on cave walls turned to oils on canvas, artists have developed new techniques and argued over what makes a painting a work of art. The answer to this question is often determined by the experience and knowledge of the person answering it.

    Classical painters may talk about realism and say that the quality of a painting is down to its level of detail and representation of the subject. Whereas contemporary or abstract artists might suggest that it’s the painting’s ability to conjure emotions and provoke thought that makes it a work of art.

    These are just two opinions from an endless list of criteria. While there isn’t often a right or wrong answer when it comes to art, there are a few technical requirements and concepts that you can follow to get a better idea of whether a painting is ‘good’. Here are some of the important points to consider when looking at paintings, especially if you plan to buy one.

    Composition

    The composition of a painting plays a huge part in how the viewer takes it in. It can impact where the eyes fall and how they travel around the painting. More often than not, the main focal point of a painting will be off-centre. Over the years, artists have found that placing the horizon above or below the centre results in a composite layout that is more pleasing to the eye. All of the great artists throughout history have used the composition of their work to take the viewer’s eye on a journey around the different elements of the painting before settling on the main feature or focus. Keep this in mind the next time you’re looking at a painting.

    Perspective

    Perspective is a very important part of a painting, particularly in the world of realism. If the special perspective within a drawing or painting is out of line or untrue, it can be very jarring for the viewer and will often look distorted. That being said, this is another aspect of painting which is often toyed with by artists to create surreal or abstract paintings. If the aim is to create a realistic representation of a subject, the accuracy of perspective is a useful signifier of a good painting. However, as mentioned, this is often down to the eye of the viewer and can change people’s opinions of the piece in different ways.

    Painting skill

    There are a number of reasons why paintings from great artists stand out above the rest but it often has a lot to do with their skill. Those with an experienced eye for art can spot work from a skilled painter easily and even those without any in-depth experience in the art industry can still tell a difference. That’s not to say that you need to be incredibly skilled to create good paintings as art is subjective but painters with experience and developed skills often create pieces that have a better composition and are pleasing to the eye. Also, a painting that has been made with great care and skill illustrates a deeper understanding and is often the sign of a good painting.

    Colour balance

    The choice of colours and the ways in which they are blended together is one of the most pivotal parts of a painting. Things like the level of saturation and harmony of tones are what create the overall feel of a painting and often stir emotions and evoke thought within viewers. Particularly in realism work, colour plays a huge part in creating an accurate portrayal. For example, if reflective colours or shadowing isn’t rendered properly, it can create a distorted or unrealistic effect. In more abstract work, colour often has a more intrinsic effect and affects people in different ways. Nevertheless, it is often clear when an artist has put time and thought into choosing the right colour palette.

    Emotion and thought

    Although there are millions of different opinions floating around the different schools or art, there is one idea that most artists and painters will agree upon. That is, that good art should inspire the viewer to think or feel something. What those thoughts or feelings are will change from person to person but if a painting causes you to feel an emotion or question your ideas, the painter has done their job. Whether you’re looking to buy a new painting for your collection or you find yourself wandering through a gallery, it is the paintings that cause an emotional or cognitive response that will stand out to you.

  • Support British artists: buy original artwork from UK based artists

    Britain has been a hub of art and creativity for centuries and over the years has given birth to some of the biggest movements in history. Here at Art2Arts, we think it’s important to support British artists and help move the industry forward. This post looks into the rich history of art in Britain and points out some of the iconic artists, movements and events to show why buying UK-based art is so beneficial for the community.

    During the early stages of the medieval era, realism art began to develop in Britain. Some of the oldest paintings include the iconic series of paintings of Queen Elizabeth I which are renowned for illustrating the evolution of art in the UK. Throughout the 18th and 19th centuries, art in Britain boomed and as the number of paintings and artists rapidly began to grow. Although the majority of artwork was usually depictive of royals or important aristocrats, artists began to experiment with new techniques and different subject matter.

    Throughout the Victorian era, a number of British artists began to move away from the rigid requirements of realism and started to experiment with new concepts. Cartoons became very popular at the time and were often used in newspapers and magazines as part of satirical and often political pieces. The concept of abstract art and impressionism slowly began to emerge also, with numerous paintings from artists that strayed away from realism. The famous ‘Nocturne in Black and Gold’ series by James Abbot McNeill Whistler is one of the most iconic examples of artwork that was unappreciated and even attacked during its time.

    After the turn of the 20th century, art in Britain experienced another leap forward with the introduction of new modernist movements that introduced the world to a huge list of new British artists. Impressionism was inspired by artistic movements in France and quickly became a subject of contention in the UK. Emerging artists and new concepts like this were often welcomed initially by critics with scorn however the British art industry has a strong history of adapting and evolving with the times.

    Today, the British art scene boasts some of the greatest and most creative minds in the industry. The post-modern movement brought with it a wave of contemporary artwork that has opened the door to a new generation of artists. What’s great about UK art, however, is that there is room for everyone. The evolution of the UK art industry has allowed all styles and concepts to flourish. Although new movements like street art have become very popular, you will still find exhibits all over the country dedicated to historic artwork and classical movements.

    Here’s a look at some of the great UK-based artists that have helped move the industry forward over the years, including some that are still creating brilliant art that can be bought today.

    John William Waterhouse

    Responsible for one of the greatest works in the history of British art, John William Waterhouse was one of the most revered painters of the 19th century. He was trained in the Academic style of the time but was among the first to adopt the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood style. Much of his work is still on display in galleries around the country.

    Francis Bacon

    Anyone familiar with the British art industry will have heard of this quirky artist and may have seen some of his breakthrough pieces. Known for working way outside of the box, Francis Bacon is responsible for creating some of the most influential works of art in British history. His exhibits helped inspire a new generation of artists and still draw in crowds today.

    Banksy

    This anonymous artist played a huge part in the development of the street art movement. His controversial graffiti paintings, many of which can still be seen on the streets of Britain, helped change street art from an anti-social crime to a recognised form of modern art. Today, there are hundreds of galleries around the UK that showcase some of the incredible work done by emerging street artists.

    Caroline Ashwood

    Caroline Ashwood is one of the many talented British artists that are helping to push the industry forward with their work. The Yorkshire-born painter specialises in abstract work and has continued to create and sell art for over 15 years, most of which is available through Art2Arts. Caroline’s work provides a perfect example of why you should buy more art from UK-based artists.

    In recent years, despite the development of new creative movements, the art industry in the UK has been suffering as a result of reduced funding and a lack of governmental support. Fortunately, several institutions and organisations have been fighting to improve the British art industry and provide more opportunities for artists. Art2Arts is proud to provide a platform on which British artists can showcase their incredible work and get the recognition and compensation they deserve. If you’re looking to buy art, be sure to browse the huge catalogue and support the British art industry.
