Artist – Craig Thomas Brown
My style is self-taught and I specialise in painting large expressive portraits using acrylics. My focus is on capturing the beauty and emotion of the subject and the way extremes of light, dark and colour compliment and play out on the facial features giving them life.
I am constantly trying to evolve and refine my approach to work by experimenting with new methods and techniques. When creating a new painting I am always striving towards the end goal – to produce something from white canvas that will elicit that slightly ecstatic moment from the viewer, that moment of elation and joy that occurs when seeing something pleasing for the first time.
