|Location||Solihull, West Midlands, United Kingdom|
|Introduction||I am an artist, working in Solihull, Warwickshire, Birmingham and beyond.|
I paint, mostly acrylic portraits of humans and animals. I exhibit original work and take commissions, including but not limited to pet portraits and family portraits.
To buy any of my existing art, or to commission a portrait - human or pet - whether you're in Solihull, Warwickshire, Birmingham or beyond, please visit artbylukebennett.com or get in touch via the contact form below.
Whilst I am full of admiration for the technical ability of anyone who can perfectly recreate real life images on a canvas, I, personally, feel that paintings should be far more interpretive in their look and nature. I like to exaggerate colours, bringing out hues of a subject that the eye might not initially see, with a healthy mixture of quick, broad and rough brushstrokes, contrasted against more considered, finer details. I enjoy the feeling of satisfaction upon creating something pleasing to the eye and also the anticipation and escapism felt during the creative process itself.
