Navratil, Greg. Impediments. Acrylic. Exhibited in Reflective Visions featuring Contemporary Nature Paintings by Greg Navratil, November 12, 2011-January 13, 2012. Newberg, Oregon: Chehalem Cultural Center.
Greg Navratil is an award-winning and nationally recognized contemporary Impressionist whose paintings express his feelings and vision of the earth’s form and nature. His artworks appear in private and corporate collections in the United States, Canada, and Europe. Greg has been a resident of Gearhart, Oregon for over five years.
Ten of these paintings were inspired from small streams in the Coast Range and Nehalem River. In these paintings, paint was applied in pure hues with an applicator. The only brushwork is on the edges. With this method of painting, the paint is much thicker and more intense. On the finished work, interference colors are troweled over the surface, adding another dimension to the almost psychedelic work.
