Thomas Bradshaw is a Colonial Heights-based artist who has been honing his painting skills since he was a small child watching his grandmother create still life paintings in her basement studio. After graduating from the Art Institute of Atlanta with a degree in Graphic Design, he moved west to Jackson Hole, WY where his evolution into a Plein Air artist began.
His loose painterly style allows him to imply detail without overstating it. Using brushwork and a palette knife to create a textural impression, he draws the viewer in for a closer look. Utilizing a limited palette, Thomas is able to create shimmering light through temperature and value, and bring the subject matter to life.
