This wonderful phenomenon in which rain falls while the sun is merrily shinning is a source of inspiration for many ambitious artists. It also represents the teamwork between these two vital elements: sun and rain, joy and abundance. The beauty behind Dan’s painting resides in its meaningful subtleties.
He conveys landscapes through different shapes, reducing everything to the idea of simplicity. it is my firm belief that simplicity doesn’t overthrow complexity, but enhances it by keeping only what is relevant for it to be understood. But that has to be done masterfully, through sustained effort.
Some of Dan's art highlights
A Hidden World
I was the lucky recipient of this digital illustration and to this day it amazes me with the metaphorical meaning it holds. So many thoughts, feelings and actions take place in this shell of a world. Some you see, most you don’t.
Traditional art is new for Dan and I proudly encourage him to explore this path more. Whether he chooses to convey sun rays or pine trees, he is certainly going to surprise us all with his unique paintings.
Another meticulously crafted piece of art displays a galaxy of colours, all colliding into a pleasing sight. The variation of the shapes and the way they are interconnected stand as a testimony to Dan’s blooming abilities.
This is a layered painting, so start with a background, mix the colours you want and create the gradient. Acrylics work best for this technique. Then add the next layer of elements and after drying add the final touches.
This is a place where different artists coexist in complete harmony.
