Max Turner's latest self-published book showcases his drawings and paintings, with a strong emphasis on the female nude. 120 drawings and paintings show a strong influence of Turner's one-time teacher, Hal Reed, a student of the unequalled painter Nicolai Fechin. Turner himself is now a veteran teacher and more recently, a sculptor. “I have found that when approaching the figure, one should begin with the gesture.  After having captured the essence or feeling of the pose, one can then proceed to build on it,”  showing emotion, movement and expression.

His voluptuous women, nubile and well-rounded, remind us at times of the sketch work of Jeffrey Jones, of Frazetta, of Roy Krenkel, and sometimes with their dynamic poses, of Burne Hogarth.

Hal Reed was a student of the Russian/American Master Nicolai Fechin in the early to mid-1950’s.  In fact, Hal was a student in the last art class that Fechin taught before he unexpectedly died in 1955.  Hal was so strongly influenced by Fechin that he later produced two 30-minute art instruction videos as part his Art Video Productions wherein he specifically described techniques that he learned in Fechin’s class.  The Fechin style and techniques were in play when Max later taught Hal. 

Over the years, many of Max’s art students, art collectors, gallery owners, and the Director of the Monterey Museum of Art have commented on the Fechin-esque qualities of Max’s wonderful charcoal drawings and paintings.  So, while Max may consider himself primarily a sculptor, his impressive drawings and paintings are also very much sought after.
