The gallery welcomes our newest member in August, Christopher Naughton, AIA, ACHA. Christopher works primarily in pastels.
In Christopher's words "My job is to recreate nature through my own personal lens to express beauty and delight....
I chose pastels to take advantage of their pure color and immediate effect by layering color next to color vs. the traditional blending. I work primarily on "toothed" archival papers and employ scumbled, hatched, and broken color techniques to create my desired level of realism. My focus as an artist is not to paint objects but instead to paint atmosphere!"
Christopher lives in Vallejo with his wife and brings his architectural experience to the gallery.
