Don Bishop

Impressionist Paintings
 
Painting is a continual growth process for me. My goal is to follow in the footsteps of the early masters capturing the qualities of light and color of the impressionist movement. I enjoy painting the magical scenery and light that makes the Northwest such a beautiful area.   In the warm months I often paint outside in the plein air style, while in the winter months I do mostly studio work. Most of my work is in oils, and, at times, I use acrylics.
 
I am an impressionist painter living in Portland Oregon. My work has won numerous awards and has been purchased by art collectors nationwide. I received a Bachelor’s degree in Art at California State University Long Beach. Seeing many of the Early California Plein Air paintings at various museums and galleries had a major influence on the development of my painting style. I especially enjoy the work of George Innes, Franz Bischoff, William Wendt, and Maurice Braun. My work has evolved as a hybrid of the tonalist, impressionist, and Hudson River School influences.
