John Beeman Artist

Welcome to the John Beeman web site, on the following pages you can view a selection of John’s paintings and also read about his background.

John has an extremely disciplined approach to his painting. His method is without fault when it comes to his technique. He paints exclusively on panels prepared with traditional rabbit skin gesso ground and, in the tradition of the early European artists, develops his work by underpainting, tonal modelling and glazing resulting in finished work that has atmosphere and luminosity that direct painting can rarely, if ever, achieve. There is nothing quick about Johns work and the end result of this approach is a body of work that, apart from its artistic merit, has archival quality that will ensure that it will endure.
