Eric Layne

Creating art has always been the primary method by which I have expressed myself. During my high school years I was interested mostly in drawing and I focused much of my time on art classes. I considered pursuing a higher education in art but ultimately went to medical school.

Through med school and residency art largely fell by the wayside, but as I settled into a career as a psychiatrist and had kids who were beginning to draw and play with watercolors, I began painting along with them and eventually spent more and more of my time visiting museums and galleries, reading and learning, and developing a strategy to teach myself painting. My foundation in drawing and composition helped greatly. I spent about eight years in this pursuit and through that process began to find my style.

I paint in oils and tend to use a fairly limited palette of five to seven colors which has challenged me to develop skill at seeing and mixing colors accurately. I am drawn to paintings that contain contrasts and so found myself choosing subjects in which I could create contrast in light, colors, and edges. Painting night scenes of fairs has been a fun and rewarding way to highlight those contrasts and to capture mood and nostalgia.
