There are several layers of opaque paint modified by glazes topped by another opaque detail, with a variety of effects including palette knife, and liner brushes as well as bristle brushes and on and on, to develop this multi-layered, texture-rich landscape. I did a little this day, and then a little more the next day, and just enjoyed coming back again and again seeing it develop.

This piece is on canvas mounted on a birch panel. It will need a frame for display.

Getting to Know Kent

There are more places Kent Sullivan would like to paint than he ever will be able. Employing many of the Hudson River School methods in his landscapes, Kent captures the ephemeral interactions of clouds, sun and earth with his delicate use of color and gesture. His work is published in two prominent books: "Art of the National Parks" and "Picturing Florida." He has lectured at museums and been sought after by many large corporations. “Several years ago I had the incredible fortune of being part of the NASA art program. Five paintings are now part of the Smithsonian Collection. At one gathering at the Kennedy Space Center, Leonard Nimoy came up and asked me for my autograph!”
