Hi World!

I'M Paul Downs

I am a self-taught artist currently based in the southeast of the U.S. around Savannah GA.  I enjoy experimenting and challenging myself artistically with multiple styles and mediums that include oil, acrylic and watercolor paints as well as graphite.   Many times mixing these mediums to create a particular effect or to get a specific result that a client would like for a commission.  Each painting ends up being a unique experiment.   I approach each one from  both a design aspect and a learning experience. Striving  to create a piece that best reflects the creativity, story or emotional context while also gaining greater knowledge in that style or medium.  Whether it is for myself or a client I make each piece a unique work. I participate in multiple local art shows each year in Savannah and surrounding areas as well as currently serving on the board of  Arts on the Coast. I appeared in the Circle Arts Foundation  Spotlight Issue #8 with my piece “Shrimp Boat”.   My painting “The Explorer” was published in issue #1 of Infinite Worlds Magazine.  In issue #19 of CreativPaper my painting “Midori” was published. I have also contributed editorial illustrations to Reflections magazine based out of Richmond Hill, GA. I am also a member of Savannah Art Association.

My art business has been designated as a "Trusted Art Seller" with The Art Storefronts Organization, which means you can shop with confidence, and know that I stand behind the quality and value of my products.



Inspiration

Growing up I was a huge fan of comics, graphic novels, animation and commercial  book cover art. Artists like N.C. Wyeth, Howard Pyle, Frank Frazetta, John Singer Sargent, Bernie Wrightson and many others were early influences and inspired my work. With these early influences I have been drawn to more graphic and illustration style work and strive to evoke a sense of storytelling and design in my own creations.

Techniques

My techniques are quite varied.  My foundation is drawing and I keep and actively work in multiple sketchbooks.  Depending on the piece I will work out multiple designs in sketch form till it either captures either what a client is looking for or the intent I may have had for the piece if it is a personal work.  I work in watercolors on watercolor paper, acrylics or  oils on stretched and wrapped canvas.  On my canvas originals these are on either 1/2 or 3/4 inch stretcher bars and I carry over the color and image elements to the side of each painting which lends a three dimensional quality when hung on the wall.

career highlights

I participate in multiple local art shows each year in Savannah and St. Simons Island in Georgia as well as Hilton Head Island in South Carolina.  I currently serve on the board of  Arts on the Coast as first vice-president as well as an active member of Savannah Art Association.  I have had membership in the Circle Arts Foundation in 2019 and was included in Spotlight Issue 8 with my piece “Shrimp Boat”.   My painting “The Explorer” was published in issue #1 of Infinite Worlds Magazine.  In issue #19 of CreativPaper my painting “Midori” was published. I have also contributed editorial illustrations to Reflections magazine based out of Richmond Hill, GA.
