Dan Looney, Artist Statement & Bio:
“My quest and passion for painting has resulted in a career of over 40 years and about 3000 works. I am still striving to grown and learn as an artist.
My process of painting usually starts free-form or with a design in pencil, then continues with big washes in watercolor or mixed media including various combinations of watercolor, acrylics, oils, gouache, torn paper collage, pen and ink on heavy rag watercolor paper and canvas. This forms a cohesive background on which I can add detail, other colors and textures.
Intense observation, memory and imagination combined with photographs, sketches and textures fuel my creative process for landscapes, cityscapes and various subjects. Light, atmospheric changes and the “personality” of the subject inspire my emotion and excitement for the finished work. My goal is a painting that is detailed and energetic and “sings” to the viewer.”
