Deborah Harold –
Deborah Harold, a post modern impressionist artist, paints daily in her studio, using large brushes, palette knives and Classic artist oils to achieve the loose, fresh, distinctive style that is her own.
After scouting a site and taking numerous photos, she’s back in her studio sketching on her canvas the composition she sees in her mind’s eye. The very thin first layer of oil then goes on to establish the palette. Once dry she starts the process which can take a day or two up to a week or two of painting, scraping and repainting to achieve the edited look she strives for.
After studying at UCLA and UCI, Deborah practiced Interior Design for years before picking up a brush to explore painting at Cannery Paints under the guidance of Marilyn Poliquin.
She has studied under numerous contemporary artists and has been influenced by Tom Balderas, Ken Auster, Peggy Kroll Roberts and Richard Claremont to name a few.
She is also influenced by The Society OF Six impressionists.
Using her keen sense of color helps Deborah to capture the essence of impressionism and abstraction on gallery- wrapped canvases ranging in size from 6″x 6″ to 48″x 48″ and larger.
Her subjects range from California seascapes and landscapes to the abstract figure.
Her work is in juried shows, galleries, home interior shops, charity events and hangs in countless homes across the country and abroad and her work has won numerous awards. She enjoys working with the trade, offers a discount and allows pieces to go out on memo to be sure the client is absolutely happy with her work.
Painting is a life-long journey, and through years of studying art Deborah will continue to tell her story through her paintings.
