|Contemporary Art in Rome|
My name is Mark Goodwin, I am 45 years old and I am from Earlsfield, London. I have been an artist now for 5 years. I work mainly with Acrylics as I find them more suited to my needs with expressing my artwork. I started by mainly sketching buildings famous landmarks, cities, shops, churches, monuments.
I then moved on to painting famous landscapes with acrylics. The first professional painting being the “Lions of Trafalgar "made in 2014 and drawn live on location.
I also use postcards, and internet images of pictures which I find very interesting to use for my work. As I got more used to painting on A4 paper, I then began to work on bigger papers like A3s.
Then I moved onto canvas boards and MDF boards.
I also painted my own version of some of the Classical Old Masters work including Titian, Rembrandt, Van Gogh among others.
Cars are also a big favourite with me, as are Italian landscapes from Venice, Turin and Rome.
Also, I like to do expressionism art especially doing my version of some of the German masters in this field.
I have travelled to Italy, Spain and South America which has inspired me to paint architectural buildings with the different styles.
In 2016 I entered a BBC Art Programme Competition.
There were 17000 entries, and I succeeded to the last 200 people invited to the BBC studios to paint from still life.
Did not get to the final 10 for the show, but it was a good experience.
Back in 2017 I achieved a diploma in Art and Design at Lambeth College, Clapham common, London.
Unfortunately, I could not go on to University due to family commitments.
