Andrew Petrov

Oil Painter

After a number of years experimenting with painting only with his hands, Andrew picked up brushes again to return to pure painting. Experiments, he thought, are vital to the growth of an artist, but nothing replaces the joy experienced by cutting loose with a brush in hand and subject in view.
