  • Rick Pas: Acrylic Nature Paintings


    Rick Pas specializes in painting nature and wildlife, but his focus is on the abstract patterns and textures visible in nature, such as in the veins of a leaf or the tracery on a moth’s wing


Cover artist Rick Bennett’s seascapes are good medicine for what’s ailing many of us: cabin fever! His paintings exhibit an expert blend of representational techniques combined with abstract methods for sublime results. Bennett shares a step-by-step demo in the feature “Looking Through Water.” Wildlife artist Daniel Smith shares his methods of how he captures photorealistic details in his paintings inspired by the life he lives in Montana in “Seeing is Believing.” Plus, Mark Mehaffey’s “The Same but Different” feature on how to use techniques to bridge the transparent and opaque divide in watermedia is fascinating and inspiring. There’s so much more: Winners of the 60th Annual Exhibition of The National Society of Painters in Casein and Acrylic, artist Denis Ryan’s gritty urban landscapes and vintage neon lights, and a sneak peek at one of the next issue’s artists, Kim Ellery.

Demo of the Week
