The Art of Robert Bailey
"The Portrait" has presented Robert's profile and work in the past and this one is a response to a video sent our way from his son Michael. I posted it in the Art Announcements page which can be accessed beneath the Blog's header picture.
Robert is a prodigous painter and he's an outstanding graphic artist. He is recently in the employ of George Lucas for the next edition of Star Wars. When I viewed this video, its pretty evident that Robert has a real love of portrait work, and painting active aircraft and military action paintings. He is adept with both pencil and brush work.
If you want to sneak a peak into his studio, I would suggest you look at the video of his house which is up for sale in Stoney Plain Alberta. Please click here.
