I wanted to tone down the electric violet at sunset and reworked the foreground several times to achieve this mood. At the end, the barn popped and the mossy green rough popped off the canvas but in a subtle way not to detract from the relaxed end of day mood of the scene.

Getting to Know Sean

Inspired by artists Wolf Kahn and David Hockney, Sean Williams triumphs color theory above all else in his work. “I try to use color as a compositional element rather than an emotional or decorative element,” says Sean. Each piece starts with a controlled color palette, and he strives to be mindful about his proportions of each color used. Vibrant hues including lime green, turquoise, and magenta are common in Sean’s paintings. The work is also marked by clean, modern lines and dynamic compositions. Each piece evokes meditative tranquility with its precise and delicate execution. When he’s not making art, Sean dabbles in carpentry and hopes to begin building furniture.
