Paul McClain, who is from Mansfield, Ohio, is one of our exhibitors in the 2nd Annual Art In The Village Part II. The art festival will be held this weekend (September 24th & 25th, 2011) in Cleveland, Ohio at Legacy Village.
Paul began to draw and paint at the age of two and has never stopped! His original inspiration came from his first museum visit (age two), and later his love of nature and solitude. He likes to use natural colors with very little enhancement, because nature provides an overwhelming array of colors. Over the years, his art has evolved to include architecture, people, and man-made objects in natural surroundings. These elements provide great opportunity for the use of perspective, adding strength, and drama to his paintings.
He likes to paint landscapes that reinforce lines of visual direction, by making clouds that move rhythmically, or using the shapes of distant trees and hills to mimic perspective. He looks for settings, or motifs that have these strengths naturally.
Here are a few examples of Paul’s beautiful work:
