Gary Bruton
Los Angeles, California

Gary Bruton likes to just let ideas come to him. Oftentimes, when painting in plein air, he lets the physical sensation he feels that day determine his approach to the canvas. He hopes to capture the relationships in the physical world that interest him. When he’s not making art, he tends to two marine aquariums that contain clownfish and sea anemones. Gary also works as a clinical psychologist, specializing in treating obsessive compulsive disorder. He currently lives in California.

Comments About This Piece

This painting was inspired by reference photos I snapped on a beautiful morning in Hollywood. The day before it had rained and the sky was a deep blue with lots of clouds.

This painting is on a cradled wood panel with finished edges. It comes ready to hang. 

Oil painting

Oil paint uses natural oils, such as linseed, poppy and walnut oil to bind the pigments. Oils are slow to dry, which allows the artist to rework the painting to achieve the desired effect. Also, they blend easily, which helps to achieve certain colors. With the rise of naturalism in 15th century Early Netherlandish painting, oil paints became preferred to quick drying tempera paint. Artists wanted a medium that would allow them to achieve detailed and precise effects in their paintings. Consider all of the detail in the masterpieces of Jan van Eyck and Hieronymus Bosch!


A one-of-a-kind artwork is a unique piece handmade by the artist. There is only one in existence. The work may be part of a series, however, the piece itself is unlike any other. This piece is available exclusively at UGallery.
