David Bottini (update)

David Bottini is a contemporary painter whose paintings are often filled with dappled light — sparkling on the surface of streams, highlighting paths and glinting off of bright autumn leaves.

His paintings are rendered in acrylic, but in a painstaking method involving layers and layers of glazes; a method inspired by his love of the luminous translucent effects of old master oil painting.

These characteristics, unfortunately, don’t come across well in photographs, so we must content ourselves with the superficial appearance of his work, which is still fascinating.

There is a video interview with Bottini on YouTube, in which he discusses some of his technique.
