Dan’s quest and passion for painting has resulted in a career of over 40 years and about 4000 works of art. He is always striving to grow, learn and experiment with new techniques, styles and mediums as an artist.

His process of painting usually starts free-form or with a design in pencil, then continues with big washes in watercolor or mixed media which includes watercolor, acrylics, oils, gouache, torn paper collage, pen and ink on heavy rag watercolor paper and canvas. This forms a cohesive background on which he adds details, other colors and textures.

Intense observation, memory and imagination combined with photographs and sketches fuel his creative process for creating landscapes, cityscapes, contemporary images, plus a wide variety of other subjects. Light, atmospheric changes and the “personality” of the subject inspire his emotion and excitement for the finished work. His goal is a painting that is detailed and energetic and “sings” to the viewer.”

Dan Looney Art is on display at 44 Degrees North gift shop in beautiful downtown McCall Idaho, and at Idaho City Trading Post in historic Idaho City, Idaho.
