Welcome To dkilpatrickart
Welcome to the website of David Kilpatrick
On this site you will find works of Art created by me. I am a painter in acrylics and I have been painting since 1986. I am also an occasional carver of soapstone. I am married with two children. I tend to paint character studies of subjects in which I strive to create compositions, whether they be human or animal that convey a particular emotion or an identifiable character trait of the subject. In the last two years I have started to paint subjects of a more metaphysical or spiritual nature. My style is mainly realistic with a touch of abstraction, particularly in the background, or with a bit of fantasy. My main emphasis while painting is creating a subtle transition between color tones, often adjusting or adding a temperature change in the small area of transition. This aspect of transitional change, I feel, allows my paintings to have a vivid glow and uniqueness to them. I hope you enjoy viewing the artwork as much as I did creating it. Thank you for showing an interest in this site.

Catitude_30x40_acrylic_9/2016. I wanted this cougar to portray an image of supreme peace and contentment. Even though it may have been chased into the tree by hunting dogs or wolves, it knows they can't climb trees and it can outrun them over short distances, or defend itself if it has too.
Water Girl_ charcoal/graphite on exhibition board_10/16 I loved the joy on this young gir's face. Like many young girls of the third world countrys, she is given the task of bringing back the daily requirement of water. This can often entail a journey of several kilometers through rough terrain and the home of wild animals. This girl manages to achieve her task with joy displayed on her face and in her heart. A task that will have be repeated sometimes more than once in a day and most certainly will be the next day.
