Classical, meticulous, American. I’m unable to say what I like in this work. Sculthorpe is a good technician. He paints a lot (I found plenty on the web). I think I liked the first one very much, then I searched a lot for others.
Many painters have an “intention” – and we love that! But he seems to want just to show us how it is. It’s so quiet…
Though it looks like photography, there’s something different. A slight something (look at the first one, this night…). Nevertheless, it’s not haunting like Wyeth.
I don’t know. I love the way he loves the light. What do you think?
Have a nice day!
