ARTISTS > Robert Buckwalter

I paint in oil, and I enjoy straddling the line between realism and impressionism. I am most interested in capturing how light, from whatever source, creates atmosphere and mood. Some of my work explores themes of solitude, perhaps even isolation, while in other works, I simply want the viewer to feel that they are inhabiting the experience of the space; that they are “in” the painting. I believe that the accurate portrayal of light and tonal values are essential for this, and that is my ultimate, and constant pursuit as a painter.
