Anything painted directly, on the spot, always has a strength, a power, a lively touch that is lost in the studio. Your first impression is the right one. Stick to it and refuse to budge.
- Eugene Boudin
Nothing makes me so happy as to observe nature and to paint what I see.

Tom Bagshaw

Posted by Charley Parker at 11:18 pm

Tom Bagshaw
Tom Bagshaw is an illustrator and gallery artist based in Bath, England.

He works digitally in a style that often combines refined rendering with background patterns or textural elements. His compositions often feature women who are looking out of the canvas, engaging the viewer directly, often with what seems to be a challenging stare.

His work is sometimes macabre, and laced with dark humor.

The galleries on his website are divided into a showcase, two portfolios and an archive. You can find additional images, including sequences of work in progress, on his blog.

In addition, he has a presence on the Behance Network that features larger versions of his images, often supplemented with detail crops.

Bagshaw, who has also been known by the handle “Mostlywanted”, offers limited edition prints of his most popular images on his Mostlywanted Shop.

    Tom’s work is incredibly classy. Charley, you’ve done a wonderful job highlighting up and coming illustrators as well as those from the past. Long may it continue.
