Trevor Swanson | Nature in General | Oil
April 21, 2021, 9am-3pm
Location: Arizona Artists Guild
Trevor will provide an overview of the design and painting process that used to create a finished work. While this normally takes weeks to accomplish, we will do as much as we can to go over a lot of the techniques and tricks learned over the years to create detail and bring a subject to life. Trevor creates a fun learning experience, and welcomes beginners as well as advanced students. We all have something to learn from each other.
By the age of 25, Trevor had won several artistic competitions, including the coveted “Artist of the Year” award from the Foundation for North American Wild Sheep. As a result of his exceptional talent, Trevor’s reputation has soared to an early prominence in the world of fine art.
Trevor has traveled extensively throughout the world to capture rare and beautiful moments. He pursues a much deeper discovery on canvas. His artwork celebrates the majesty of untamed wildlife and beauty of unspoiled environments. “I paint realistically, because the beauty of life is in the little things. The multi-colored moss growing on the rock where a wolf is standing, the light beaming through trees branches onto the fur of a bear; these are the details that breathe life into the painting. I try hard to portray these subtle elements of tone and mood because they complete the story being told.”
“I love to lose myself in the rich color and vivid detail of my own brush strokes and discover only later where it has taken me. It gets more exciting all the time.
This workshop will be face to face and held at Arizona Artists Guild.
