RICHARD MURDOCK - RATIONAL PAINTING - JESSE WAUGH ART VLOG
Richard Murdock paints in oil using Munsell colors to exactly replicate the true hue, value, and chroma of what he sees. His paintings have achieved widespread recognition for their extraordinarily beautiful execution. He states on his website: "I’m passionate about expressing what is most beautiful about my subject by being able to paint that which is most true about it." His equating of Beauty and Truth reminds me of Keats' famous couplet: 'Beauty is truth, truth beauty, —that is all Ye know on earth, and all ye need to know.'
