Brian Keeler, an award winning artist with ties to both the Susquehanna Valley and the Finger Lakes, has published his second book titled "Light on the Figure- Aspects of Painting People."
This new book is devoted to paintings of people, portraiture, genre scenes, slice of life Americana, allegorical interpretations of ancient myth, cityscapes and other subjects. Light on the Figure is designed to appeal to the general reader with special significance for collectors, other artists and students.
This beautiful hardcover has been years in the making and represents over four decades of the artist's career depicting people in his work. Oil paintings are predominant but the book also includes pastels, watercolors, drawings and etchings. More than just another beautiful coffee table volume, there is significant text where Keeler explains about his inspirations, technique and ideas. A unique feature of the book is the inclusion of links to YouTube videos providing views of the paintings during their development.
