Hi Bas, nice to chat with you this morning, concerning the late David Perkins. David, as I mentioned, produced a number of Canadian wildlife paintings, one of which I own. These were all the subjects on Canadian stamps, and now that David is sadly no longer with us, I wonder if some of your paintings would be suitable for them?

Response by The Art of BAS:

Hi Angus,

Thank you for your message and apologies for my late reply, just viewed your message! Good to chat with you recently and interesting to hear of a fellow wildife artist although sadly no longer with us. I'm glad that you have find memories of David Perkins and no doubt his artwork brings such memories that much closer. Thanks again for getting in touch.

Best wishes,

Hi Bas, I never tire of looking at your paintings. Special favourites - the bison, and the elephant paintings. The way you capture light is amazing. I feel that if I was to put my hand on the bison's coat it would come away wet! Such pleaure. The Creator must be well pleased. God bless. Beth

Response by The Art of BAS:

Absolutely beautiful art pieces, the rhinos are very nicely done. Thanks for sharing. I have bookmarked your page and will definitely come back again. If possible, I hope you can consider adding work-in-progress page to docuement your creation process. Thanks.

Response by The Art of BAS:

Hi again Justin,

Good idea about the "Work in Progress" page, that would be useful for sure so I'll have to get round to it sometime and will let you know when it's live. Glad you like the rhino's too, just finished another rhino painting and will place it on the website soon. All the best, BAS.

Looking at the collections of art work is proved to be soothing one's soul. You have the best gifted hand in painting. I'll avail one of those pieces of art one day. Keep it up! God bless!

Thank you very much for your kind comments and I'm glad that you sense some soothing of your soul when viewing the paintings - art should certainly be edifying to the soul amongst other qualities. God bless you, BAS.

Hi BAS Thank you for your reply. For my A2 work I am going to look into water scapes, if you have any informatiion that you think would be useful then please email it to me! Also i real like the paintings that you completed of the sea.(ocean moment and seascape scenario) would it be possible to have more informstion on them (e.g. material used and time took to complete and feeling and thought behind the paintings). Best wishes, Anna Williams

Response by The Art of BAS:
Hi Anna, Good choice for your A2 studies - Waterscapes! Water is an amazing substance with its fluidity and reflection of light, I'm sure you'll have endless subjects to study. If I can be of any assistance just let me know. I'm glad that you like "Seascape Scenario" and "Ocean Moment", being that I live on the coast I am forever gazing out to sea! Both are oil paintings and took around two-three weeks to complete. Neither are particularly detailed paintings, usually it's the detail that takes the time. Whenever I paint ocean scenes I sense the freedom of that environment, places of natural beauty and open expanse always inspire me to paint. The wildlife within the paintings are part of the natural environment, I try to convey that balance between the wildlife and its surroundings. Best wishes with your art studies and chat anytime, BAS

Hi Bas! Remember me? I talked to you in July in Carmarthen with a young kid from the Spanish Basque Country - I´m still going to try to get your paintings into the Guggenheim when I get time! We were really impressed! Regards, G.

Hi BAS! I just want to say that since I have seen your work first in England I was fascinated of it! It´s a explosion of light and colours -it is fantastic! I think when I have a job, I will try to buy one of this moments of life and nature-I just love your word. I also love painting, but I´m not even so good to get a good mark in school... . I hope you keep on painting (I think I like the tiger pictures most)and in a few years I will buy one! Is there a exposition near Aachen ´bout your pictures you could tell me about, I would really like to go there!!! Bye Svenja

Your paintings are very impressive- I love the way you use colour and light, and the animals you paint look so very realistic and lively! I love to draw/paint wildlife myself too (I use pastels though) and I want you to know your art really inspired me to keep going on this drawing I was having a hard time with- thank you :) Kind regards, Ellyn

Response by The Art of BAS:
Hi Ellyn, Thank you very much for your message on my Guestbook. Your kind words about my artwork are much appreciated. Great that you also like to draw/paint wildlife, pastels are an excellent medium to use, you'll have to email me some images of your artwork some day, I'd love to see them.
