Welcome to the new mitchmen blog

Welcome to mitchmen, home of Mitchell's Art.

I only post occasionally here but in the sidebar you can connect to my two principal sites - my blog (where I talk about my work and pay tribute to artists who excite me) and my Yahoo! Group (where you can join my mailing list, read my stories and see my latest pictures).


There's also a link to a small gallery of my work here (last updated Aug 2016).
If you have problems with the link read this notice.


T
hank you for your interest and support.

Marooned

Ross Watson - Untitled

One of a series of pictures by Ross Watson in which he blends photographs of young men into scenes from old masters. The concept is a bit pretentious really but I admire the technical skill that has gone into matching the colouring and textures, giving a surrealist flavour. The fearful anticipation on the model's face and the elegant pose make a terrific image anyway and angling his body to echo the slanting masts is neat.
You can see other examples at Beautiful including a crucifixion scene featuring Francois Sagat which I have also posted at my main blog
