Featured Artist: John Stansfield

Interview

John Stansfield joins CP Magic from the United Kingdom as the first featured artist of 2021. He is a long-time artist with interests in portraits of all types, and botanical subjects.

John’s work is filled with life-like detail and a depth of realistic color. His artist’s journey is at once unique and common to many other artists, and he shares advice for other artists interested in going into full-time work with their art.

Tutorial

John’s tutorial features a beautiful silver tabby cat, and his method of adding and removing color to create life-like detail. This tutorial includes links to a digital download of both the reference photo, and the line drawing.

The Great Art Adventure

For many artists, the beginning of the year means the enjoyable task of goal setting. For others, goal setting is an unpleasant but necessary first-of-the-year activity.

Carrie has been setting goals for years and has also written about it many times. This year, however, she looks at goal setting as though it were a journey. A great art journey, with suggestions for identifying your main destination as well as rest stops along the way.
