Diane Gibson Newsome produces representational art. Her style may best be described as “Impressionistic Realism”. The paradox of perceived detail produced by abstract brush strokes and subtle elements especially intrigues her. Driven by a strong work ethic and love for painting, she is striving to refine her own approach to creating a three dimensional illusion through texture and sculpting with paint. Working primarily in oils with brush and palette knife, she appreciates the vivid and luminous quality of this medium.
