10659205_579498942156354_6839691738063601854_n Oil painting has always fascinated me from an early age. The rich colors, the depth of a three-dimensional reality on a two-dimensional canvas, the thick impasto strokes over thin oil washes, the feel of buttery paint at the end of a brush, the rich smell of linseed oil and the exotic fragrances of aromatic varnishes–all add to a full, sensory experience.

I enjoy capturing the many moods of nature with a loosely-rendered realism, be it a peaceful, relaxing vista, or a fleeting, windswept moment. My goal, whether in the studio or out painting a “plein-air” on location, is to interpret what I see in a way that stops the viewers in their tracks and causes them to appreciate the beauty and majesty of the natural world in an inspiring new way.

Joseph Burrough first picked up his brushes at age 15. He grew up in the small town of Tappahannock, Virginia on the banks of the Rappahannock River, a tributary of the Chesapeake Bay. Joseph taught himself to paint by reading books on drawing, sketching, and painting, and by closely studying oil paintings in galleries and museums. Throughout high school, his college years at the University of Richmond and into his adult life, he painted whenever he could.

The experience, for Joseph, begins with the very smell of oil paint. Then the rich colors, the depth of a three-dimensional reality on a two-dimensional canvas, the thick impasto strokes over thin oil washes, the feel of buttery paint at the end of a brush, and the rich, heavy smell of linseed oil and exotic fragrances of aromatic varnishes–all add up to a full, sensory experience for him.

At the easel, he enjoys capturing the many moods of nature in a style of loosely-rendered realism, be it a peaceful, relaxing vista, or a fleeting, windswept moment. Having grown up on a navigable river, his fascination with boats has lead him to focus on the aging skiffs and small boats of the Chesapeake Bay, depicting their peeling paint with generous dollops of palette knife work.
