Artist I’m Looking At

Simon Birch is an artist that I found through stumbleupon.com.  He is a young artist who is self taught and has his own unique style.  I’ve seen paintings of out of focus landscapes and images, something like what  a camera would produce.  His paintings are different because of the unique textures that he creates in his works.  I want to use the idea of his work, blurring the image in my own way rather than just realistically recreating it.  My work will create different textures and have a more illustrative nature.  I also plan on making not only paintings but more pastel drawings because I like the heavy layering of color that I achieved in my first drawing.
