ARTISTS
Ollie Beal
Bean (they/them) was born in Los Angeles, CA and raised in Salt Lake City, UT. Throughout their entire life, since they could hold a pencil, they have been building, crafting, and creating artwork in many different shapes and forms. They have dabbled in lot's of different mediums including watercolor, drawing, acrylic painting, ink, digital artwork, photography, crocheting, sewing and many more. Bean is also well traveled, as they taught art classes in Atlanta, Georgia (2023 & 2024) instructing classes on drawing and painting to ages Pre-K through 7th grade at a private school.

Watercolor so happens to be one of the ones that's stuck around the longest. The flow of watercolor is therapeutic when being mindful about it and it's become a large passion in Bean's art career. They are thrilled to be able to share the flow of this art with other creatives!

Taken at local park as sun was setting. The light as the sun was setting reminded me of a painting from a tutorial I had previously worked on. It was reminiscent of the French countryside and was something that looked so peaceful.

Title or Location: Gracie
I find painting dogs very interesting because their appearance is so varied. This golden doodle is from a friend's photo of her pet Gracie. I painted a loose background in watercolours then painted negatively to pick out the wavey and curly areas of her coat. Gouache picked out some lighter areas. I find painting without a drawing creates a looser result. I start with the nose and measure from there.

I saw a photo of a beautiful cat on Facebook and asked the owner if I could paint it - Matt Raatz agreed and I created this line and wash using ink and Roman Szmal watercolours and Posca pen for fine details.When I showed the painting to Matt he asked to purchase the original and it has since been shipped to Wisconsin.
