Nick Patten – Hudson, NY

Settling on a composition for one of my room interior paintings is a progressive process. I pick and choose the most interesting and necessary elements from an array of photographs, often adding items from my imagination.

Light & Dark is a primary focus of my painting, with particular attention to brush stroke and gradation in the darkest areas. Through working from photographs with the aim of creating believable paintings, I strive to bring a quiet drama to everyday scenes.

My paintings are never intended to be “photographic”. In part, my aim is to make paintings where the content of the image is most compelling, and how the painting was made is secondary. In a sense, attempting to make the work exceed the medium, my goal is to be able to paint what I want to see.” Nick Patten

  1. I am an appreciator and admirer of Nick’s work forna couple of Years now. His skill is incredible and his works are so well executed. They aren’t photo realism but so believable as the artists interpretation of the rooms he sees and depicts. I enjoyed this article in the blog!!
