DOUGLAS NEWTON

My paintings are about light. Translucency, reflections, luminosity, all the ways light can transform our perceptions. My paintings of candy are more about the light on cellophane and foil wrappers than the candy itself. Other paintings are about light around and through paper, plastic or fabric.

I paint directly from life instead of using photographs, My compositions are very influenced by abstract painting, and use the rich, sensuous quality of oil paint to capture the beauty of what I see.

All the paintings are oil on canvas. They are all available, except those marked in a private collection. Please contact me for prices or to view the paintings. My studio is in the Fort Greene section of Brooklyn, New York.
