Johan van der Spuy

I find great pleasure in painting natural and urban scenes, from landscapes and flowers, to lively street scenes. I let my acrylic paint dictate each step of my paintings. When I start with an idea, be it from a photo or en plein air, I visualize the scene in my mind, and convey the feelings it inspires onto the canvas. More often than not, I start with a specific idea, and it changes to a completely different finished painting.

My work begins by studying the different colors in nature; from earthy tones of greens and browns, to fluid and watery shades of blue. I find the ways these colors change over distance and with light and shadows, and I eventually I draw out a variety of contrasts. I draw inspiration from the masters of art, both old world and new.
