Dan Young, Daily continues...
University of Gloucestershire fine art technician and short course tutor Dan Young has successfully completed his challenge of painting a complete oil painting every day for an entire year.
And Dan, from Cheltenham has enjoyed the challenge so much he plans to continue with his daily daub for the foreseeable future.
Dan has started his second year of painting with a pencil and watercolour drawing of a slice of strawberry gateaux.
“Making a painting every day has become an intrinsic part of my life so I have decided to continue into next year and beyond,” said Dan.
“The format has changed a little, this year any painting or drawing media can be used but all the works will be on paper.
The first year of the project has attracted interest from all over the world with collectors in Australia, America, Japan, Germany, and Slovenia buying his work, and fans as far afield as South Africa, Brazil, Canada and New Zealand following his progress on his daily blog,
“Working as an artist in a studio can be a solitary experience but through the power of the internet my work has been seen all over the world, which has given me huge impetus to keep making the paintings.
“I have also had messages from fellow artists who have been inspired to take up their brushes again which is a great feeling,” said Dan.
Dan graduated in fine art painting from the University of Gloucestershire in 1997 and completed an MA in computer art in 2005. He has exhibited in London, Sydney, Glasgow, Manchester, Norwich and Cheltenham and has work in private collections internationally.
