“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
