He who knows how to appreciate colour relationships, the influence of one colour on another, their contrasts and dissonances, is promised an infinitely diverse imagery.

Terry Miura (update)

Posted by Charley Parker at 9:54 pm

Terry Miura
Since I wrote about California painter Terry Miura in 2007, his website has been redone and updated with new paintings, divided into sections for Landscapes, Cityscapes, Figurative and Small Works.

Miura’s softly geometric, atmospheric paintings emphasize color harmony and composition and have an emotional resonance for those brief, almost unnoticed moments when we are struck by time of day, slanting light, passing shadows and hints of change.

While light plays an important part of many of his compositions, particularly the cityscapes, it is more often the role of atmosphere that defines the work, not just in the sense of muted colors and decreased value contrasts, but in a palpable feeling of being surrounded by air of a certain kind, of warm sun or cool mist.

Miura teaches figure painting at the School of Light and Color in Fair Oaks, CA, as well as teaching occasional workshops. He has recently published a painting demo booklet from his plein air painting workshops.

Miura also maintains a blog, Studio Notes. A recent post mentions that one of his paintings has just been acquired as part of the permanent collection of the Crocker Art Museum.

    A beautiful set of paintings evocative and emotionally charged, with visual imagery that most people should easily relate to. those passing moments in a journey, the short stops in a town along the way !
    Oh yes, wonderful, wonderful !!
