Original art in this online gallery mainly consisted of painting until 2013.
Circumstances over recent years made painting difficult. At this point, dry mediums were investigated.
Much of the current artwork is created in mixed media. Mainly lightfast coloured pencil. Coloured pencil is still a misunderstood medium. However the quality of the manufacturing and materials used has developed. Many Fine Art galleries in key Cities around the world, such as New York are including coloured pencil artists within their portfolio.
Joe Hendry uses mainly Caran D’Ache Luminance pencils which have the highest lightfast rating currently available.
Artist Joe Hendry has had an online gallery since 2004.
In the years since, the artwork displayed here has developed. From a very graphic style, mainly created on large canvas, the art is now smaller and more intimate. This applies to both drawings and paintings.
Changing between figurative art and landscape painting, Joe Hendry artwork now hangs on the walls of art collectors worldwide. Paintings by Joe Hendry are included in several books and can be seen the sets of television programmes.
This website will showcase new work. The older original art is in the Archive section.
Figurative painting and portraits have been the main subject matter for Joe hendry over the years.
Initially creating Fan Art or Celebrity Artwork, this gave way to more varied creations in both acrylic and oil paint.
Paintings featuring Kilted Figures or “Kilties” began in 2007. They have developed over the years to include the detailed tartan – clad figures of the more recent original art.
Joe Hendry also paints Landscape artwork. The artist has travelled much of Scotland, with some other landscapes from visits to England and other parts of the UK.
