Barry Darnall

Bio / Description: 

Fine arts artist working in charcoal, pencil, pastel, color pencil and watercolor. Most of my work involves portraits or figure drawings with forays into still life and landscapes now and then. For years I worked mostly with pencil. More recently I've returned to charcoal as it is a much more workable medium and allows greater flexibility in changing and correcting a drawing. I've also worked a great deal with color pencil, pastels, and watercolor in the past few years to broaden my experience in color. I'm also beginning to work with oil paints and hope to do much more with this medium in the future.

Last year I opened Enterprise Art Studio in a re-purposed building on the former Chanute Air Force Base. The building is well situated for easy access from US 45 and I-57. During the summer of 2013 we began holding life drawing sessions on Wednesday mornings and plan to begin holding both life drawing and portrait sessions beginning in 2014 in the early evenings. The sessions are open to all artists and mediums. More details coming soon.

We also participated in the Boneyard Arts Festival 2014, a first for Enterprise Art Studio, with about 30 people stopping by to see artwork by several local Rantoul artists. We also held a live portrait session with a model and multiple artists which allowed visitors to see how different artists approach the same subject.
