Adrian Gottlieb’s work shows the effect of his training in Florence under both Charles Cecil and Daniel Graves.  The emphasis on on light effect through a deep chiaroscuro, built on solid drawing, give a strong naturalistic result.  A very limited colour palette keeps the emphasis on tonal relationships.

Gottlieb is clearly a man who has set out to master his craft, to become a true draughtsman.  And his dedication shows.    I will be interested to see where his work leads in years to come.
