I enjoy painting landscapes, marine scenes, garden scenes, and still life. I would like to describe my artisitc style as a realistic style with an immpresionistic flair. I apply the oil paint to canvas with both brushes and painting knives. In oil paiting I utilize thick textured paint especially with flowers and foilage which stands in contrast to the smoother areas of the painting. This creates a 3D affect which allows the onlooker to feel as though they can walk into the scene
I came upon an older oil painting that I painted over 15 years ago. Oil on canvas, 24” x 30”, painted with heavily textured oil. I call it “Covered Wooden Bridge, Stanley Park”.
