"Illuminating the figure in a whole new way"
Donald Clapper illuminates the figure by using multiple light
sources with color splashes penetrating the composition. This dramatic
colorful lighting adds drama and mystery to the figure. The
style combines everything that the artist enjoys in quality painting... dramatic lighting, interesting composition, skillful
technique and a unique blend of exciting color.
"Infusing the paintings with color makes the figure come to life in a vibrant way. Honoring the traditions
of classical paintings yet bringing a contemporary look to the scene"
