Douglas W Newton
Brooklyn, NY
Neighborhood: Fort Greene

Media:Painting;


ARTIST STATEMENT: I paint subjects that have an unexpected beauty that I can translate into oil paint. I also have a series on candies and their wrappers, focusing on their translucency and reflections. In all these paintings, my emphasis is on light, color, texture and atmosphere.
