About Douglas Newton
I live and work in Brooklyn, New York and have been painting in oil for many years. I studied art at Art Center College of Design and The Art Students League. Also, I have done many years of Life Drawing at Spring Studio in Soho.
Lately, I have been specializing in still life painting.
I paint the things around us: fruits and vegetables, household items, toys, all the objects of everyday life. I also have a series on candies and their wrappers, focusing on their translucency and reflections. In all these paintings, my emphasis is on light, color, texture and atmosphere.
