YouTube video...again
Grovelling apologies to people that have already seen my earlier post on my YouTube video but I have been informed that to gain maximum hits I need to include the blurb that accompanies the video that has many keywords embedded in the text. So here it is:

Dreamlands - Oil Painting With Mark Harrison. Although not a regular oil painting demonstration this film portrays the development of an oil painting by Mark Harrison from initial sketch to completion. It shows Mark Harrison's basic working method and oil painting techniques, in this case a fantasy landscape painting called "Borderlands" for exhibition at the Illuxcon Art Symposium in the USA, held in Allentown PA in October 2015. The film of Mark painting in oils was filmed and edited by Cliff Wright of Eaglesmirror in Mark Harrison's studio and home, compressing the time taken for painting "Borderlands" into one notional day.
Mark Harrison was an illustrator based in the UK for 25 years in which time he painted 484 book jacket illustrations for most major UK and USA publishers including Penguin Books, Bantam Doubleday Dell and Harper Collins. An artist's monograph of his work called "Mark Harrison's Dreamlands" was published in 1990 by Paper Tiger for which he won The British Science Fiction Society's award for Best Artwork in 1991.
In 2003 he ceased illustration and started to paint personal work for sale in UK galleries, at first using chalk pastel but now paints exclusively in oil on canvas. He has exhibited work with The Pastel Society, The Royal Institute of Oil Painters and the Royal Society of British Artists at the Mall Galleries, London, the Medici gallery in Cork Street, London as well as many other galleries in the UK. He is also a frequent contributor of articles for Artists & Illustrators magazine published in the UK as well as his own work being published in American Art Collector and International Artist magazines in the USA. He is included in "Who's Who In Art" published by the Morven Press and "The Dictionary of 20th Century British Illustrators" published by The Antique Collectors Club.

No rubber ducks were harmed during the making of this film.
