New Print Release: “Quiet Rapture.”

by ncwinters on January 27, 2016

New print release- first of 2016!

I’m going to try and return to my “new print release each month” mantra from last year. I think I kept to it, but honestly have a strong feeling I faded out near the end of the year. I will try to do a few more print releases, but keep the print runs rather small. My goal is to get prints into the hands of people who don’t necessarily have the funds for an original but also not flood the market with a million prints. I do almost all my own printing, and my own packing and shipping, as I am indeed a one-man shop so this keeps my workload sane as well.

“Quiet Rapture” is the first print release of the year, one of the early completed works from the ongoing 366 Days of Winters project. So far, I’ve kept to a new bit of art every day for 2016, but of course, it’s still too early to see how this experiment will pan out. I am confident that it’ll come together though! The print is a highest-quality art giclée print made with archival inks on acid-free 100% cotton. Each print is hand signed and numbered and available in a limited edition of only 15 prints made. Prints measure 8″ x 10″ and are available for $35 each and shipped flat. Prints will go live for purchase Friday, January 29. As always, to get the exact drop time, sign up for my newsletter in the sidebar.

Thanks as always for all the support!

And another finished entry into this year’s goal of 100 new drawings:

This is “Third Sight and Then Fourth” or, as I like to think of it: yet another drawing that started out as pure black ink on white paper and then I couldn’t help but add color at the last second. Gotta love those brown tones… Enjoy!

Live Art Seminar and Demo at Marcas Gallery.

by ncwinters on January 26, 2016

Live workshop and demo!

I’ll be working and answering questions live and in person this coming Saturday at Marcas Gallery in Santa Ana, California. Sponsored by the good folks at Trekell Art Supplies, I’ll be answering any art-related questions proposed by the audience while working live on a new painting. In Marcas’ own words:

“Marcas and Trekell are pleased to welcome illustrator, N.C. Winters to start off the demonstration and seminar program of 2016. Recognized for his highly detailed pen and ink compositions, Winters has received widespread acclaim and is a vital source for those who aim to learn more about the illustration process. Winters will demonstrate pen, ink and acrylic techniques, as well as further discuss his career as an artist. Additionally he will open Q&A for the duration of the seminar. All attendees are encouraged to record their observations using a notebook or sketchbook during the seminar.”

There is no cost for the event, but space is limited, and an rsvp is required. Simply send an email to rsvp (at) and you can come and attend. Afterwards I’ll be working alongside several amazing artists, each working in his own medium. Other artists in attendance include Che Smith, Chris SooHooGraham CurranGustavo RimadaRamón HurtadoRichard J. Oliver. More info about the painting demo here. See the map below for parking options.

Should be a total blast, see you at the event!
