This is a landscape by Cooper Michael French. This artist is unique in many ways. His approach to this painting was this…he starts by splashing in thin neutral color of random shapes. After turning the canvas several different ways he waits until the shapes suggest a subject, and then he follows the painting and develops the suggestions the canvas provides. Cooper paints in a very limited palette when using this approach. When the piece is complete it always has a sense of peace and tranquility. His work shows an incredible understanding of nature and maturity about it, but still changes as time goes on for the better. The sign of a true artist.
Here is a video I made! 🙂 I love teaching other individuals how to paint. I especially love it when students have that real passion for creating! Art workshops are important in my opinion and they help all artists grow no matter what level they may be at.
