John Afflick


John Afflick

John Afflick is a very traditional, realist, figurative artist. His oil paintings are systematically constructed using very traditional methods reminiscent of the Great Master painters. On a handmade gesso ground the image is drawn in ink, heightened with egg tempera white and finished with glazes using a hand purified sun thickened oil.

John’s personal work and his commissioned portraits are stunning and are brought to life by his unique ability to create beautiful colour effects through a warm, muted, golden brown limited palette.
