Doug Oliver’s New Style and Technique?
As a result of the Hould-Oliver collaborative projects, I have completed a piece for the May Gallery in Scottsdale, AZ (www.maygallery.com) that demonstrates a loose, contemporary style using southwestern subject matter. The foundation here is the application of a heavy textured base and then painting in a glaze-wash before adding an impasto style over the base. This new contemporary look may be a new, fresh direction for me and is an exciting new exploration into painting. After forty plus years of doing this art-thing, this proves that an “old dog” CAN do new tricks!
