This painting is a part of a new series called "Landscape Abstraction." I paint with an acrylic wash establishing shapes, color, and texture placement. I then use a palette knife with oils to block in these areas. The painting is purely an abstracted reference to places I have sketched on location.

Getting to Know Patrick

Patrick O'Boyle primarily paints in a studio, rarely using reference material other than his own thoughts and dreams. He always paints in a series of five - at the end of the fifth painting he revisits and reworks all of them until he feels they're complete. Using extra-long handles on his brushes, Patrick paints at a distance from the canvas so he can see the works evolve as a whole from the one color he starts with to the vibrant array at the end.
