THE ARTIST

As far back as I can remember I have been infatuated with the pure beauty of the outdoors, and all that it offers. My artistic goal is to capture the essence of that beauty through the painted medium. The process I follow is intended to provide the viewer with a sense of atmosphere through the interaction of light, shadow and depth to convey a stimulating visual experience. I want to make a visual statement that enables the viewer to feel as though they are present at the specific place or moment I have captured in my paintings.

My greatest artistic pleasure is to be able to share with others what I am able to create.

Theme and Subject Matter

The world around me is filled with visual scenes that influence the theme for my paintings. When I take a second look I find an interesting element that draws my attention and I know I have found the basis for a new painting, be it landscape, animal, figurative or floral.

Technique

During my four years at Layton School of Art my professors were instrumental in advancing my ability to sketch, draw and paint following the philosophies of the old world masters. I develop my painting compositions from my sketchbooks. I begin each painting by creating a series of value study sketches to define the light direction, tonal values and overall color theme. If a composition holds together well in black, gray and white I find it provides a feeling of emotion in color that will create a lasting impression. At times I find it valuable to create a watercolor wash study to further determine the color theme prior to beginning the final painting.

My painting approach is to paint in the broad patterns and shapes first. I then proceed to paint in the darkest and lightest areas. This approach sets the tonal range for the painting and enables me to control and push color values to achieve bright color throughout the composition. Next I develop the various shapes in the painting as I add layers of paint. Then I establish the tonal range between the background, mid-ground and foreground. I also concentrate on the light direction and work on the intensity of color as it relates to the highlight, midtone and shadow areas. As a final step I concentrate on my brush strokes and layers of washes and paint to create the final vision and feeling I intend to convey to the viewer.
