Bob Bretell, san marcos Member Since October 2008 Artist Statement My "painted” images look more like Old Masters paintings than they do photographs. "I have always had a love and appreciation for 17th century still life paintings, with wonderful use of light and shadow to create drama. I also love rich texture and try to incorporate that into my work. What I am doing is more of a modern day adaptation of that style using this unique photographic process instead of oil paint and brush".
During the past two decades, I have developed a diverse portfolio of commercial experience including the unique assignment of shooting for the esteemed flower company, Paul Ecke Ranch. Most recently, Bretell was a featured artist at this year's International Exhibition of Photography in San Diego.
