My Bio

Richard McMurry
(703) 591-7443

I’m trainded as a classical oil painter, and I specialize in landscapes. My two styles are Barbizon, and stylized art. One of the most important things to me is atmosphereic perspective. In other words, achieving the illusion of distance with the use of atmosphere. I use a lot of dark umber colors In my works, because I believe that dark colors bring out rich colors, especially with the use of oils.
