As an avid reader, the artist tries to capture in his mind the events chronicled in the books and other materials he reads. Schmehl also consults with historical experts. Armed with all the research available to him, the artist?s goal is always to paint each element of an event or story. From uniforms to weapons to horses to even the time of day and weather conditions, Schmehl?s paintings are as authentic as possible. The artist usually starts with a rough pencil sketch, mostly done on location, then he engages his models to pose as the various characters in the image and photographs them. Once Schmehl is satisfied that his concept is historically accurate, he commences creating his painting. Working in oil on canvas, the artist creates a rough under-painting. After drying, he over-paints the details and refines his brushwork. Schmehl describes his technique as ?painterly realism.? ?I strive to capture the true nature of the light, the color, but I make no effort to disguise the brushstrokes. Even while attempting to render meticulous detail, I strive to paint boldly and deliberately.? Schmehl has traveled throughout the country in pursuit of his subject matter. Extensive trips to Civil War battlefields, to other historical sites, to even being on the range in Texas have allowed the artist to collect and record the many, many notes, sketches, and library of materials that contribute to Schmehl?s fine work. A Schmehl painting gives the viewer a unique perspective on the subject matter portrayed. As the details in the image come to life, an appreciation of history is evident. When not on a research trip, Schmehl cherishes the time he and his wife, Becky, spend in their 1885 Victorian home with their two cats. As committed Christians, the artist and his wife are active in their church; Brad plays the guitar in the worship band. Come live history through the eyes and paintings of Bradley Schmehl?it will be a most enjoyable journey.

Phillips ?aviation Was My First Artistic Love,? Says William S. Phillips, ?but My True, Enduring Love Remains My Christian Faith, Home And Family. So It Is My Pleasure To Combine All Of It In My Work. The Historical Aviation Subjects, I Research; The Contemporary And Nostalgic Subjects, I Live.? Phillips Grew Up Loving Art But Never Thought He Could Make It His Livelihood. At College He Majored In Criminology And He Had Been Accepted Into Law School When Four Of His Paintings Were Sold At An Airport Restaurant. That Was All The Incentive He Needed To Begin His Work As A Fine Art Painter. Bill Phillips Is Now The Aviation Artist Of Choice For Many American Heroes And The Nostalgic Landscape Artist Of Choice For Many Collectors. Bill?s Strengths As A Landscape Painter Are What Gave Him An Edge In The Aviation Field: Respect And Reverence For A Time And Place.

In Bill?s Nostalgic Works, The Viewer Understands Fully What That Freedom Is . . . The Precious Values That Make Life Worth Living. After One Of His Paintings Was Presented To King Hussein Of Jordan, Phillips Was Commissioned By The Royal Jordanian Air Force. He Developed Sixteen Major Paintings, Many Of Which Now Hang In The Royal Jordanian Air Force Museum In Amman. The Smithsonian Institution?s National Air And Space Museum Presented A One-man Show Of Phillips? Work In 1986; He Is One Of Only A Few Artists To Have Been So Honored. In 1988, Phillips Was Chosen To Be A U.s. Navy Combat Artist.

Works Were Chosen As Part Of The Top 100 In ?art For The Parks,? The Prestigious Annual Fund-raiser For The National Park Service, And One Painting Received The ?art History Award?

April 19, 2014, 5:00 AM PST

Las Vegas, NV, USA

Estimated Price: $390 - $490

Description: Collapse of the Peach Orchard Line - Gettysburg by Bradley Schmehl - Edition Size: 950 - Print - Signed & Numbered Dimensions: 20 x 30 Release Date: 11-1998 ???.As an artist who loves and studies history, Bradley Schmehl has made it his life?s work to research the subjects for his paintings through diaries, letters, books, visiting historical sites, and generally immersing himself in any materials available to him. From the Civil War to the cowboys of the West, Schmehl finds his subjects fascinating. Talking and exchanging ideas and information with others who share Schmehl?s interest in history also offer the artist opportunities to expand his resources. The artist says, ?History is a world which is past, yet exerts its influence on us all. It is possible to visit and experience the world of history through the work of writers, filmmakers, living historians, and artists. I want to help open the window on our history so that more people can share in the view.? Schmehl?s detailed paintings reflect the many historical aspects he includes in his images. As an avid reader, the artist tries to capture in his mind the events chronicled in the books and other materials he reads. Schmehl also consults with historical experts. Armed with all the research available to him, the artist?s goal is always to paint each element of an event or story. From uniforms to weapons to horses to even the time of day and weather conditions, Schmehl?s paintings are as authentic as possible. The artist usually starts with a rough pencil sketch, mostly done on location, then he engages his models to pose as the various characters in the image and photographs them. Once Schmehl is satisfied that his concept is historically accurate, he commences creating his painting. Working in oil on canvas, the artist creates a rough under-painting. After drying, he over-paints the details and refines his brushwork. Schmehl describes his technique as ?painterly realism.? ?I strive to capture the true nature of the light, the color, but I make no effort to disguise the brushstrokes. Even while attempting to render meticulous detail, I strive to paint boldly and deliberately.? Schmehl has traveled throughout the country in pursuit of his subject matter. Extensive trips to Civil War battlefields, to other historical sites, to even being on the range in Texas have allowed the artist to collect and record the many, many notes, sketches, and library of materials that contribute to Schmehl?s fine work. A Schmehl painting gives the viewer a unique perspective on the subject matter portrayed. As the details in the image come to life, an appreciation of history is evident. When not on a research trip, Schmehl cherishes the time he and his wife, Becky, spend in their 1885 Victorian home with their two cats. As committed Christians, the artist and his wife are active in their church; Brad plays the guitar in the worship band. Come live history through the eyes and paintings of Bradley Schmehl?it will be a most enjoyable journey.
