Contemporary Impressionist – Artist Steven Quartly
Quartly’s dedication to painting the world he sees has contributed to his vibrant works. A plain white canvas becomes a beautiful European city scene, a Mediterranean seascape, or a warm California Landscape.
He began oil painting at age 13, demonstrating a love of life, nature, color, and form. Raised in the Northern California Coast he was surrounded by the beautiful scenery and the inspiring city. There he studied oil painting under a mentor painter. Ten years of study of the French and early American Impressionists. The technique is intriguing and energetic with oil and resin brush and pallet… forced Perspective and bold color and texture….all to invite and inspire the viewer into the scene.
Steven's energy and devotion to each painting are what make him unique. His design in composition and color is meaningful and skilled. The loose and whimsical brush strokes and pallet knife work brings passion and emotion. His overall faith in God is his purpose and desire to express the beauty in life.
