Inspired by this charming but unique aerial view of two boys walking at Santa Monica Pier while spending a day at the beach, I created this Impressionistic figure painting to capture this summer moment. Using my signature Pixel Impressionism brushstrokes to render the motion of these young pedestrians, I created textural tension between the moving people and wooden boardwalk. This painting is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished white edges. It comes ready to hang.

Getting to Know Warren

Warren Keating''s paintings start with documentation. He captures subjects on video from birds-eye views, digitizes the film on his computer and, finally, paints them on canvas in an active style he describes as Pixel Impressionism. He merges artistic elements of the 20th Century with 21st Century technology. Warren credits Futurism as well as Richard Diebenkorn and Willem de Kooning as influences in his paintings. Fun fact: Warren’s inspiration for this series came from a vacation to Paris where he photographed passersby from his hotel balcony in Saint-Germain-des-Prés.
