Mark Eliot Lovett (1956)

Such a realist technique fits perfectly well in a mainly photographic blog, and Lovett in fact uses photographic software to see how desaturating the colours in a picture can improve the balance, then adjusting the painting itself. His compositions can be a little chocolate-box at times, but his observation skills make each portrait individual, and not generic. He came to painting quite late, initially as therapy in alcoholism and drug-abuse rehab, but went as far as visiting Florence to see figurative painting at its best – all-in-all a fascinating artist…..
