Marc Bohne is a landscape painter originally from Texas and currently based in Seattle, Washington.
I’ve admired his work on the web for a number of years, and had it bookmarked for inclusion on Lines and Colors, and I’m frankly surprised I haven’t featured him before now.
Bohne is wonderfully skillful in his depictions of foliage and other landscape elements as masses of value and color, using suggestion, finessed control of edges and just enough texture and detail to have your eye fill in the rest as naturalistic.
Many of his compositions are atmospheric, both in terms of planes of distance and in terms of emotional resonance.
Bohne’s style appears to be a natural match for the subdued, atmospheric beauty of Ireland, a country he has visited three times, and a collected group of his paintings of the Irish landscape will be on view in a new solo show at the Magnuson Park Gallery in Seattle, starting with an opening reception tomorrow, October 23 from 2-5PM, and running to December 17, 2016. There are additional details on his website.
Bohne also has a blog on which he discusses concepts of interest relative to his painting experience.
