Neil Brooks "Bird Bath" Landscape Painting

About

Neil Brooks conveys the essence of San Diego in his vibrant large-scale paintings. Starting with quick sketches on-site, he then develops ideas on large canvases stretched over his studio wall. He holds off on finishing his paintings for as long as possible while making marks and laying on color, so there are always “little doors” to sneak through. Exploring the layout and design in the studio leads to experimental and imaginative places on the canvas—although never completely abandoning the original inspiration of figures or a particular scene from the Southern California coast. In “Bird Bath,” the viewer peers through a matrix of agave plants to discover a birdbath nestled amidst the succulents’ protective leaves. Two small inhabitants occupy the camouflaged oasis, safe in their garden home. The birdbath’s diminutive boulders and crystal-clear waters remind the viewer of the rocky cliffs that abut the blue waves of Pacific Ocean, which are suggested by the subtle kaleidoscopic mix of cool and warm tones that emanate from the top of the canvas. Signed by the artist in the lower right corner.
