I've recently been checking out Aaron Nagel's artwork...he's been around for a while but I only found out about how serious this guys painting skills are in the last 6 months or so. I don't really know all that much about him other than that he paints the figure like a mad man! Then come to find out I'm in a show with him in London, England next month!!! His blog is filled with images of his and other artists work and a few art tips for oil painters too.
Here's links to his website and blog...check him out...you won't be disappointed.
