There are few artists alive today who have been drawing and painting for 75 years.
Albert Handell is one of the few. From the age of 6, drawing with chalk on his Brooklyn neighborhood sidewalks, to an award-winning artist sustaining a professional art career for over six decades.
Imagine everything Albert has experienced in his life and career — technological developments, cultural shifts, changing trends, worldwide art movements … and yet Albert has not only survived, but continues to thrive as a living legend.
Having no trees, hills, or streams growing up in Brooklyn, Albert’s love for nature and for painting landscapes was forever imprinted on him after a move to Woodstock, New York. Years later, painting water and its surroundings continues to be his favorite.
In this video, Albert shows you how to take what touches you in nature and translate your impressions with paint.
The Challenge of Water and Rocks
Water and rocks are some of the most challenging subjects for many landscape painters … and just two of Albert’s specialties!
Watch and paint right along with Albert as he shares the tips and techniques that will help you bring the rush and power of flowing water into your paintings.
You’ll see how to make rocks look super realistic by depicting them accurately — the true colors, the lost and found edges and angles, and the shadows they create. Whether the rocks are your focal point or used as a strong backdrop, getting them just right makes the movement of the water natural and believable.
You’ll be hard-pressed to find an artist and instructor who can bring water and rocks to life as well as Albert can.
