I was recently contacted by the highly acclaimed Spektral String Quartet,  asking for permission to use one of my paintings in their 2017-18 marketing program for upcoming performances of Arnold Schoenberg String Quartets. I was more than happy to grant permission, and here are the results.

Sibelius 13 WIP
This is a work in progress. Been listening to a lot of Sibelius lately - so decided to paint a portrait of him. Long way to go yet. Thanks for viewing.
Abstract Landscape No 1
Artrage and Paintsorm Studio. This was inspired by a cracked/broken pottery vase and also by a recent archaeology program I saw on the TV which had some aerial views of old archaeological buildings only visible from above. Thanks for viewing.
Good, Bad, or Indifferent 090417
Thank you for viewing. This work was painted almost entirely in ArtRage, with a small amount of the background in PaintStorm Studio, using a Huion GT220 Graphics pen monitor. This is essentially a re-painting of a painting I did a few months ago which I was unhappy with (it was too much of a caricature for my liking). I was tempted to call this one "Groundhog Day" initially, but I thought his eyes held a bit more menace than resignation. 


Les-Allsopp's Profile Picture
Les Allsopp
United Kingdom
I have had a love of art since an early age. I gained a Diploma in Art and Design, and later spent 3 years at Lincoln University (Hull School of Art). I have interests in portrait and figure painting, but have worked with most media, including oil, pastel, charcoal, 3d modelling, printing, acrylic, inks and photography.

Amongst many, many others, I admire the works of Munch, Modigliani, Goya, Lovis Corinth, Gary Hume, Paula Rego, Rembrandt, Lucean Freud, Picasso, Brecht, and the German Expressionists.

I have recently become unable to continue painting in oils and canvas etc., so I decided to learn how to paint digitally. I couldn't contemplate giving up painting altogether and digital painting has proven to be the solution for me as I needed some vehicle to allow me to express my love of art and ideas etc. It has also provided me with a motivation to overcome the challenges that are facing me.

I currently use a Huion GT220 graphics pen monitor, and the software I use is Corel Painter 2017, ArtRage, Paintstorm Studio, and Rebelle. With the occasional use of photoshop.
