Kevin Courter made his debut at our Gallery in the fall of 2009 as part of the group show, “A Heaven in the Eye.” A Bay Area native, Kevin enjoys a stellar reputation among working California landscape painters. His exceptional interest in tonalism as well as in picture frames makes him a natural fit for Holton Studio.
In these paintings he is very aware of design in composition and the use of negative space. This can be seen in his moody moonlit paintings with eucalyptus trees. The other side of Kevin’s brush is a painter of local color. These paintings reflect color, light and mood and yet, the tonalist is still there.
