Anne Bagby Artist Update

March 14, 2017 2 min read 19 Comments

Anne BagbyAs you may know, I bought a house at auction in Winchester in 2010.  My husband and I have fixed up this house as an art studio. This move has allowed me to have workshops close to home, and to limit travel for classes.  I have been able to concentrate on my work and spend more time at my painting. (So far it has been a project without end. There is always something more to do with an old house. And with art, too!)

During the last couple of years, I have become interested in Anatomy and Drawing classes that I have been taking on the web.  The graphic industry out of California has need of young artists that can draw from their imagination for games, movies and comics. These classes are intended for them.  I have joined their ranks and love that I can take such demanding and interesting classes without leaving my home in Tennessee.  The main benefit of the classes has been an increase in my confidence in my drawing. I think my CC videos that I did with you fills a similar function for artists wanting to take a workshop with me but who can’t make it to Tennessee.

Pattern and drawing are the twin interests I have had over the years and with these classes I have been able to really concentrate on form and line and the human body.  What fun! At the same time I have begun to work bigger.  This means bigger brushes, more paint, bigger patterns and bigger paper.  One change has made a lot of difference in my techniques.

I have continued to be interested in letter shapes and words.  Letter shapes seem to me to be the ubiquitous patterns of the modern world. Print is everywhere! Using letterforms and words is not exactly a subject, or a new idea but a way of expressing more about the figure.  The great thing about art is that there is always something new to try or to learn.  You never have to retire!Anne Bagby

Have loved your work for a long time. Now that I’m retired I have the opportunity to create all day and night if I wish. I have purchased one of your videos and love it. Looking forward to acquiring more of your DVDs and watching your YouTube videos. Thanks so much for sharing your gift with others.

Your work is so inspiring. So beautiful. I have enjoyed viewing your DVD instructionals over and over and find that I, too, love to alter paper with paint and pattern. Thank you.

I own all Anne Bagby DVDs. Top favorites. I keep searching for more DVDs (hint hint). My budget currently does not allow much, however, Anne’s workshops and studio classes are on my wish list for sure! Thank you Creative Catalyst for bringing us amazing artists like Anne Bagby!

I have both of your DVD’s Anne and absolutely love them. Because I live in Australia I have no chance of attending your classes and would be over the moon if you can make a new video to include your new ideas and techniques.
