"In the event you can't decide between a landscape and a seascape," jokes Keith Thomson. Expansive, graphic-styled landscape paired with an old tugboat. A humorous painting that encourages viewers to ask questions and propose possible hypotheses of how the ship found its way into the mountains. Rolling green hills and dramatic lighting and cloud cover round out the piece.
Keith Thomson is a mixed-media artist whose art is packed with wit, humor, and ingenuity. He began his artistic career as a political cartoonist in the 90’s, a background that is reflected in the sharp storytelling of his artwork. His portfolio relishes in the escapism offered by art; each painting, though realistic in style, presents a scenario with a surreal and, at times, ironic twist. To begin a work, he sketches out his idea using an animation software. Then, he transfers the sketch onto the canvas and finally starts to layer oil paint. In addition to painting, he writes spy novels and nonfiction articles.
