Eugène Boudin

Eugène Boudin

(1824 - 1898)
Born: Honfleur, France
Style: Impressionism
Famous Works:
  • Princess Pauline Metternich on the Beach (c. 1865-67)
  • The Port of Camaret (1872)
  • Beach Scene, Trouville (1873)
Eugène Boudin is known as "the painter of beaches" and spent much of his lifetime at the beach resort in Trouville, on the coast of Normandy, painting scenes of Parisians on holiday. Boudin had a talent for observation, able to keenly observe and scrutinize those around him. Complimenting his ability to observe, Boudin possessed an insatiable passion for nature and a love of capturing the movements of people at play. Boudin was able to create paintings that came alive with his use of color; oceans seemed to roll, and the sand would flicker in the sun. His brushstrokes are loose and playful, and his paintings are laced with constellations of unmixed color taken straight from his palette, leading the eye around the canvas. Boudin's work did not focus on the traditional subjects of the landscape painters before him such as Nicolas Poussin or Claude Lorraine. Gone are the academic and religious subjects. Instead the gestures of the people collecting shells at the beach, the flickering light in the sky, and the sun on the sand are what Boudin concerned himself with painting. This creative new approach to the function of painting influenced and inspired Impressionists, including Claude Monet, who returned to this beach to paint what Boudin had years before him.

35 years painting signs, lettering vehicles, boats, windows and more. I have always used 1 shot lettering enamel and would never use anything else. High gloss, durable and it was in my opinion the best. I preferred the older 1 shot when it had lead in it, but it's still the best lettering enamel by far.

This punch is listed as having the smallest hole : 1/16--not so; it's 5/32 and I'd like to know where to buy the extra tips-Tandy leather doesn't have one listed for this model. I bought this because of the small 1/16 size, but I guess I should save the money and return it.

Mack Brushes are every bit as good as Langnickel, Rafael and Grummbacher brushes, and superior to Scharff as they tend not to shed as quickly. Of the two main series of quills, the 179L series and the 189L series are the best of the bunch; the 839 stripers and the 1992 flats are better than anything else currently on the market. As a professional sign letterer and third generation sign business owner, I recommend Mack Brushes. l
