About the Artist

erwin rummel

Erwin Rummel received his art training by taking numerous courses at Santa Monica College (Santa Monica, CA), at the Avenue Road Art School (Toronto), the Brentwood Art Centre (Santa Monica, CA), George Brown College (Toronto), and OTIS College of Art and Design, Los Angeles, CA.

He is working in a number of media, but concentrates on painting. An artist with an interest in well-structured figurative or representational work, with emphasis on classical compositional rules, he evokes both realism and impressionism in his canvases.

He does studio painting -- still life and figures -- but prefers to set up his easel outdoors to capture the nuances of atmosphere and light. He likes to paint in bold fresh colors, inspired by the beauty around him: dramatic skyscapes, interesting coastal scenes, rocks and water, local scenes around the farm and the effects of human impact on our environment.

 

He feels that art is a constant learning experience, a reflection of the world that we live in, of its true nature if we take the time to look.
