Hello, and welcome to Atwoodart.com. My painting mediums include oil, acrylic and
For six months of the year I paint en plein air (outdoors and on site). Even
though there are challenges (wind, heat, bugs, etc.), nature and light play off the
atmosphere and inspire me in a different way than painting in my studio.
My studio painting is from sketches, photographs and many small studies I have done
and covers a variety of subjects. Outdoor scenes and situations motivate me to
transfer them to canvas or paper and bring out the emotions I feel from the color,
composition and light.
I have had many great instructors during this ongoing journey. Workshops and
interactions with other artists have been and will continue to be instrumental in my
growth as an artist. I am blessed with the desire to learn and explore and this fires up my passion for painting.
Enjoy your tour!
