He who knows how to appreciate colour relationships, the influence of one colour on another, their contrasts and dissonances, is promised an infinitely diverse imagery.

Rachel Constantine

Posted by Charley Parker at 9:33 am

Rachel Constantine
Contemporary realist Rachel Constantine is based here in Philadelphia, where she studied at the University of the Arts, The Fleisher Art Memorial and the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts.

Her work is featured in Alla Prima: A Contemporary Guide to Traditional Direct Painting by Al Gury, current chairman of the Painting department at PAFA; as well as in a number of other features and mentions in various periodicals.

Constantine has a nicely painterly approach, with rough edged areas of color contrasting with smoother passages in her definition of form.

She focuses primarily on figurative and portrait subjects, but you will also find lively still life subjects and muted, quiet landscapes, as well as a selection of drawings, on her website.

    Breathtaking artwork – just beautiful. I’m an artist myself, and my forte is watercolors and pastels. I came across this website that can truly help you whether you are a beginner or advanced. Truly recommend you try this – you will see a big difference in your paintings…I did!
