Artist, Mark Rush:
My paintings are from sketches and photos I have taken on location. My influences include the California Impressionists and their landscape paintings that capture the color, light and essence of our local settings. For my compositions, there needs to be interesting subject matter that draws a viewer into it. To achieve that I use a combination of lines, perspective, color, layers, texture, lighting and shading to create the illusion of perspective and depth; “Overall the finished work should provide the observer with a feeling of being there and me sharing that experience with them”.
