Brian Keating

Brian Keating - Born in Dublin, Ireland.

I Studied at the National College of Art and Design, Dublin, Ireland.

For ten years, I was an art director for several of Ireland's leading magazines.

The next ten years  I was involved with interior design for many of Ireland's Night clubs, Hotels, Restaurants and Bars.

For the last 15 years I've been drawing and painting.

Impressionistic Drawings:
"Before I start a drawing, be it on site or from notes and photographs, my first step is to study the scene, observing the overall dynamics of the "action" and "Interaction" between the subject, and the environment".

With each drawing, I endeavour to capture a moment in time, hopefully portraying the movement, energy and direction within and surrounding the subject.

I want my lines and colour to project the activity that's abundant in a fraction of a moment, a hesitation of time and a glimpse into the next second.

Detailed Drawings:
Fine detail black and white drawings using a “Cross Hatching” technique for tonal effects.
