I've been a huge fan of Jeremiah Goodman, also know as 'the man who drew space'.
The 88 year old has painted evocative interiors for the wealthy and influential and for 15 years, he made monthly covers for Interior Design magazine.

In the latest edition of FRAME magazine, there is a spread featuring this artist and a few of his paintings belonging to a bygone era and I was inspired to do my own version using oil pastels

The image shown is of the New York decorator, Ruby Ross Wood's drawing room in a vibrant shade of vermilion.

My version of his water-coloured rendering, but I have used oil pastels.

This is one of Goodmans work for the new Acne Store in London, completed in 2010.

Another beautiful painting by Goodman of the multimillionaire art collector and interior decorator, Carlos De Beistegui's Parisian dining room.

He has also published a beautiful book, Jeremiah: A Romantic Vision, which offers a rare look at true grandeur.
Premium quality giclée prints are available exclusively from Dean Rhys Morgan.

Be inspired today!
