Andrew Wyeth: Wyeth’s World

wyeth

Andrew Wyeth’s influence on my own art will be obvious to some. That influence is not one of technique (as he famously used egg tempera for his major paintings, not a medium I’ll be trying any time soon) but rather the desire to capture a certain mood, a certain kind of emotional connection to something beyond words.
