Ron Garnier is enamored with the interaction of light and shadow as they travel over the surface of still life objects affecting the appearance of texture and colors. Painting in the Old Masters traditional style, Ron brings the objects to life in his oil paintings through eye-catching compositions and the subtle interrelationships of light, shadow, vibrant colors and rich textures. Each still life painting begins with blocking in the objects with variations of grey values to perfect the composition and enhance the contrast and transition of light into shadow; the grey underpainting also provides the artist the option of using glazes during the following color stage. Ron’s goal is to transcribe the beauty and a sense of mystery that’s created by these elements in his paintings and have a penetrating visual impact on the viewer.
