After establishing a successful carer as an illustrator, Wisconsin artist Tom Nachreiner transitioned into gallery painting.
His landscapes, cityscapes and figures are based on a framework of solid draftsmanship, allowing him to apply his paint in loose, gestural strokes, at times taking his compositions close to the edge of abstraction.
I particularly enjoy his use of rough edges, accented with crisp counterpoints in key areas.
In addition to participating in plein air events, Nachreiner also teaches and conducts workshops.
The painting collections on his website are arranged by year, but you can also choose “Genres” at the bottom of the drop-down navigation to sort by subject.
