Nature and wildlife artist, Boyd Greene, uses Rhythmic Realism's mathematical and musical rhythms in his oil paintings to bring the natural world to life. He relies on strong design, rhythm and atmosphere to evoke feelings of serenity in his paintings. He always strives to tap into an animal's or scene's raw beauty by understanding it thoroughly, often taking 200 photos of a single subject to find its best angle. Then there is the research through nature books and the internet for information. Next, he makes numerous studies in graphite to find the best placement and tone for a particular subject. Lastly, Boyd will use graphite to sketch a drawing on a medium toned canvas before painting. Boyd uses only the finest oil paint Old Holland, for its amazing pigmentation, painting on linen and wooden panels. Using a minimum of brushstrokes he expresses his inspiration in thick impastos of paint known as chiaroscuro and transparent shadows to create energy in his paintings. The shadows are made all the more intriguing by his use of amber which creates a translucency that grows more beautiful as it ages revealing hidden colors. Amber is also recognized as one of the finest preservatives. Finding his inspiration in the Appalachian Foothills, Boyd grows ever more fascinated with the Creation of his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Boyd finds great satisfaction in exploring for subjects to paint as it furthers his understanding of a particular subject; as he learns more about what makes it unique by close study and observation. Boyd hopes to raise money to support conservation that benefits the people that enjoy nature. He is highly interested in causes that benefit man, wildlife and the splendid scenery found all around the world. He hopes many will come to see their yards and neighborhoods as places of natural habitat for the wildlife that is so often pushed aside by urban sprawl.
