Simon Kozhin
Russian artist Simon Kozhin takes a painterly approach, often roughly textural in his location paintings, as he works with a variety of landscape subjects — both from his travels across Europe and the Mediterranean, and near his home in Moscow.

He also takes on figurative and narrative subjects, and you can find an extensive selection of his work on his website, arranged by location and other subjects.

Kozin explores many levels of value relationships in his paintings, from subtle to dramatic, using them to bring to fore the characteristics of light under which his subjects were painted.

There is a brief video on YouTube of Kozhin painting on location in Ischia, off the coast of southern Italy, and a television interview for those who speak Russian.

School Bus: Step-By-Step in Gouache
// Gurney Journey

Here's a step-by-step sequence of the school bus painting that I showed you recently. The medium is watercolor and gouache.


I used a background-to-foreground approach, starting with the sky, then the trees, then the surrounding setting, and finally the bus and its details. 

(YouTube video) David Rankin of the SKB workshop made a little video about the painting.
