I’ve spent a few days with my webmaster putting together a new webshop. I thought I would celebrate finishing being in front of a PC for hours on end by offering everyone a 25% discount for one week on the nine prints I have on there. Just enter the code OPEN25. Code active for until Sunday. #fletchersibthorp #art #painting #oilpainting #contemporaryart #contemporaryrealism #contemporarypainting #painter #classicalrealism #Fineart #limitededitionprint #artprint #modernart #realism #figurativeart #portraiture #impressionism www.fletchersibthorp.com

Detail of work in progress – the idea of creating essence through serendipity and chaos, to control and also to give in to chance. We’ll see if fortune favours the reckless. # #fletchersibthorp #art  #painting #oilpainting  #contemporaryart #contemporaryrealism  #contemporarypainting #painter  #classicalrealism  #Fineart  #artgallery  #artstudio  #modernart #realism  #figurativeart #portraiture  #impressionism www.fletchersibthorp.com

Sometimes fancy pants brushes are not the right tools to use. I like the serendipity of flakey brushes that just won’t do what they’re told to do. I suppose when you buy a five brush set for 99p from Tool Station what should you expect? Time later for my lovely Rosemary brushes to finish off the finer details and hone in on the more controlled expression but for now I’ll have fun with this unruly bunch and the sounds of Thom Yorke and Jlin #fletchersibthorp #art  #thomyorke#jlin #oilpainting  #contemporaryart #contemporaryrealism  #contemporarypainting #painter  #classicalrealism  #Fineart  #artgallery  #artstudio  #modernart #realism  #figurativeart #portraiture  #impressionism www.fletchersibthorp.com

Throw back Thursday to an piece inspired by Lana Del Rey song – Blue Nail Varnish @lanadelrey I’m listening to her new album whilst painting my new painting. Many critics thought LDR was a flash in the pan but when you quote Robert Frost, TS Eliot and Disney in your lyrics and are still creating great songs years later, people should acknowledge there’s more to her than meets the eye. #fletchersibthorp #art  #painting #oilpainting  #contemporaryart #contemporaryrealism  #contemporarypainting #painter  #classicalrealism  #Fineart  #artgallery  #artstudio  #modernart #realism  #figurativeart #portraiture  #impressionism #lanadelrey #lanadelreylove www.fletchersibthorp.com
