La Quinta Arts Festival Artist Advisor Tate Hamilton has been painting for many years and enjoys painting in a ‘painterly’ style. He travels all over the U.S. and shows in only the top festivals in the country. He has won many awards in different states.
“Painting to me is about having fun and challenging myself, using the basic visual elements. To create my style I use the general ‘painterly’ philosophy, large shapes which begin with my darkest darks and whittle them down into smaller lighter shapes. I generally only use a #12 brush and get big thick brushstrokes. I only use 5 colors on my palette: Cad yellow, Cad red, Alizarin Crimson, Ultramarine blue and Sap green. I can paint just about any subject and prefer painting cityscapes.” –Tate Hamilton
