Welcome To dkilpatrickart
Welcome to the website of David Kilpatrick
On this site you will find works of Art created by me. I paint in acrylics and pastel on suede mat. 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. Since 2014 I have started to paint subjects with a metaphysical theme or spiritual nature to them that often deal with themes of enlightenment and contain the language of light, in the colour and composition. I first create my compositions in Photoshop, using various photo references to create the image of an idea I have in my minds eye. 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.

'Tall Grass Tiger'_ pastel on suede_24x30_5/2019. I love to paint tigers. This painting was created on a dark blue suede mat. I left the odd hint of blue in the painting to compliment the orange and yellow of the tiger and the grasses.
