To compose art is to see it, feel it and think it. We will do all the necessary study including plein air, sketches and photo reference. Combining imagination to fuel all the inspiration we gather to imitate reality. Keith calls this, “Creative Representation Realism. It’s part real in that it is based upon what we can see and know; that’s the objective nature of art. It’s real in the subjective sense because the stimulus for the art has been processed through the soul. It is no mere picture or exact representation of reality but the reality within and without; that makes it a work of art”.
