With his background in architecture, Bruce Neville’s fundamental visual skill of drawing is the beginning of his paintings.
Watercolor has become his passion and very much a part of his life. He looks for subjects that inspire him, and often has his drawing pad and pencils with him in his daily travels.
Bruce explains his creative process: “I draw my subject, whether it is a landscape or cityscape, and then, combining imagination, all the design elements, and most importantly, rational thought (my private thought process), I determine the mood I want and the amount of movement I want in my skies.”
Bruce adds, “I also express a great deal of emotion to create the mood. I feel my subject, know it well, and I have gone beyond expressing technique to expressing the passion I have for watercolor.”
In addition to teaching at Baker Hunt, Bruce leads workshops throughout the country, and exhibits at numerous art fairs, festivals and events across the United States.
