Seasons, Late Summer

Seasons, Late Summer, watercolor, acrylic, gold leaf, 28" x 36", 2004

Richard graduated with a B.S. degree from Truman State University in Kirksville, Missouri in 1960. In 1962, he received his M.A. from the University of Northern Iowa in Cedar Falls, Iowa.

About his process, Richard writes, "My art works are developed from on site sketching, painting and information gathering. I taught art history classes in college and this forms a basis for my work. I have always loved to travel and the images I gather are from historical and ancient places ... I use transparent watercolor on 140# and 300# watercolor paper. I also may include gold leaf and acrylic as part of the painting. The larger watercolors use a heavier 500# watercolor paper. The paint is applied in many layers during the development of the painting. The first coat is very fluid and subsequent layers are more and more exacting as the composition is developed."
