A stand of aspen trees on a clear autumn morning. Soft light from the left creates a series of delicate shadows across the trunks. The background features warm browns and cool blues, accenting the brightness of the trees and ground cover. Leaves are painted in a loose manner.
After painting for years out of the family room of his home, Robert took the plunge and built an addition to his home for proper studio space. He works in two very different styles, producing both color-blocked abstracts and realist landscapes. Robert begins each painting by creating a thumbnail value sketch to establish a composition. Each piece reflects his mood, but whether energetic or placid, the colors must always be harmonious. Robert’s technique uses mostly brushes with the occasional addition of palette knives to create subtle surface texture.
