Easel Time.

Hi, I'm Robert Joyner

My favorite materials are acrylics, watercolors, paper, worn paintbrushes, graphite, crayons and inks. My style has been described as loose, bold and unique which I tend to agree with.

The majority of my time is spent making really bad art. Occasionally I get lucky and create winners, too. Guess I like to play & doodle more than painting finished pieces which I find rather boring. Somehow I manage to make a living & paint full time - lucky me.

What I'm Up To

I'm currently focused on watercolor. It was my first medium and certainly my favorite. I love the looseness and immediacy. I also feel it lends itself to my natural style. In addition to that I'm creating a lot of tutorials and teaching online workshops at my new teaching website painthog.com.

Making Fine Art Affordable

My goal as a full time art professional is to make fine art affordable and accessible for everyone, not just the rich. I enjoy connecting with collectors all around the world from retired Military to the middle class single mom that deserves to own great art. See available paintings here.
