Doug started painting in the early 1970s.
His artistic journey began in earnest in the early 1990s.
He explores the juxtaposition of Expressionism and Impressionism,
always searching for his unique way of interpretation.
Doug prefers the wet-in-wet "Alla Prima" approach to painting.
"There is a truthfulness and honesty to direct painting,
creating a sense of time, evoking a sensory response by the viewer."
There is an exceptional expressiveness
and sensitive richness to his work that is seldom seen.
"When I am surrounded by nature, it evokes a feeling or mood in me.
I attempt to capture the vitality and richness of the scene
while working on the emotional context which is crucial for me."

Master Painter's of the World, USA, Northlight's Best of Flower Painting II,

"Oil paint provides me with the versatility I enjoy in painting, from the slow drying time to thin washes or thick applications of paint
with brush and pallet knife."
