RAF Creative Art - Oil and Acrylic Paintingswww.ArtPal.com/rafartist
I have been interested in painting all my life and enjoy the boldness of the impressionist and early post-impressionist artists. My favorites include Van Gogh, Renoir and Monet.
For the better part of the past 25 years I've become a bit more serious in my approach to art and have made an effort to exploring new techniques and styles to push me out of my comfort zone. While I still favor bright and vibrant colors, I look to put them into more varied compositions. I've also had a lot of fun adding much more texture and thickness to some of my works to give them more of a heavy impasto treatment or even a 3D feeling.
Art has always been a very welcome and calming therapy for me. I hope you enjoy viewing my art as much as I enjoyed creating it.
