I'm in a mixed media mood today. Graphite, watercolor, and colored pencil play nicely together. #WIP #MixedMedia #Trekell #Verithin #GlennArthurArt

Hi friends! I'm often asked how I draw faces without a reference. Well, I learned it mainly from studying Andrew Loomis books. His techniques are very strong and easy to remember. Once I got the basics down I added my own style to the mix and that's what you see. Cheers! #Sketch #AndrewLoomis #ArtTechniques #Illustration #Drawing

I've recently become obsessed with growing and collecting succulents so naturally I'm going to be including them into my new work. This black rose is so gorgeous I can't wait to paint it! If you have any favorite succulents I would love to know what they are so I can look them up! Thanks! #WIP #Sketch #Drawing #Succulents #GlennArthurArt

I guess I'm not allowed to work on any sketches until I pet the cat. #CatLife #CrazyCatMan

Succulents are so cool. My personal favorites are these ones: https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-SMqZFfCKbxM/TvzRggPUvuI/AAAAAAAABfI/jaA-GB7Y1Po/s1600/IMG_4924.JPG

Autodidact artist. Imperfect perfectionist. Art Nouveau and Neo-Victorian enthusiast. Macabre romantic. Nerd.
Introduction
Glenn Arthur is a self-taught visual artist from Orange County, California. Born in February of 1979, he grew up in a conservative, religious household with little to no influence in art. After shedding his roots he quickly realized that creating art would be his calling. Although he constantly doodled and sketched throughout his youth, Glenn did not come into painting until his late twenties when a friend forced a paintbrush into his hand and said, “You need to do this!” 

Since then Glenn has been diligently working on creating his own brand of beautifully painted images. Using several different types of media, he adds in elements and influential symbols of his past and present to each piece. Beyond the aesthetics of his artwork, Glenn brings an overwhelming sense of passion to his paintings. Touching on themes of love, death, conflict and duality, Glenn’s art tells stories of strength and hope through emotion and sentiment with his sensual beauties and signature hummingbirds. 


Bragging rights
Glenn’s artwork has been shown in galleries and museums throughout the United States in solo as well as group shows. His work has also been published in several art books and magazines. Glenn is sponsored by Trekell Art Supplies.
