Parma, Oil on Linen, 22"x24"

"My artwork is best described as atmospheric representationalism. Still life, figures in landscape and portraits are my preferred subject matter.

My influences are mostly sixteenth and seventeenth century Italian and Spanish painters; I am perhaps most informed by the use of oil paint as an expressive medium by the Venetian artists of the sixteenth century."  - Paul DuSold

Paul brings some of his students into the museum to explain the way light and shadow create depth and shape in the paintings featured in our Pennsylvania Impressionism and Landscape exhibition.

Upcoming classes by Paul DuSold:

Painting in the Landscape
Meets 5 times
6B Monday-Fridays, July 25-29, 9:30-12:30pm

This alla prima landscape class is for painters of all levels. The class will meet at several different locations, including Valley Green, Morris Arboretum and the Schuylkill River. Demonstrations will be given in oils, but students are welcome to work in other media as well. Emphasis will be on painting quickly and expressively. Students will be instructed in seeing the landscape in broad terms in order to think about composition and make rapid decisions about mixing color.
