New Plein Air Work

Over the past year I have been researching and following the trail of the 18th century naturalist and explorer William Bartram. Here are some of the recent plein air paintings following Bartram’s path through Georgia.

About Denis

A graduate of the University of Georgia’s Lamar Dodd School of Art; I have been drawing and painting ever since I can remember. I have always been inspired by the art of Romantic painters such as Eugene Delacroix, John Constable and W.M. Turner. I consider myself a modern Romantic seeking to capture the emotion or feeling of a subject above all else. Charles Baudelaire described Romanticism
as “…situated neither in choice of subject nor exact truth, but in the
way of feeling”.
