(D.K. Pritchett): Landscape is my genre of choice. I'm inspired by the mountain landscapes of North Georgia. I also enjoy painting still lifes and portraits. I love deep, strong colors and exciting contrast. I do prefer the visual input of a natural subject, though I'm not tied to superficial detail ~ too much attention to detail and photographic color can make a painting static. When I paint, I love to play around with the brushwork and the composition. Some of what happens in my painting is planned; some of it is spontaneous and accidental. I can't say what makes me place a spot of color here or tweak the composition there. I don't always know where I'm going. I just kind of know when I get there... Early Works, Links, Intro.
