Larry McQueen

Painting for me is the culmination in the process of observation, sparked by an event in nature.

With ornithological subjects, I attempt to capture the life of the bird and the character of the species. This applies to both my field-guide illustrations and my compositional painting. My paintings are about the beauty of the bird as an integral part of its environment.

Watercolor (including gouache) is my medium of choice for its immediacy. Oils are ideal for long, involved processes sometimes required for the development of the image. For oil painting, I work on canvas or on stretched watercolor paper primed with gesso.
