Brent Lynch, plein air and studio painting

Brent Lynch is a Canadian artist who transitioned from a successful 20 year plus career in illustration to the full time pursuit of gallery art and plein air painting.

To my eye, Lynch’s paintings are often focused on the interplay of warm and cool colors — intense blues and greens in dynamic balance with deep, rich red-oranges.

Lynch also plays with balance in his strongly geometric compositions, frequently pushing the effective horizon well above or below the top or bottom third of the canvas.

I particularly enjoy his marvelous depictions of water and reflections.

There is an interview with Lynch on the website of the Ida Victoria gallery.
