Damien M. Gonzales
Damien Gonzales is a self-taught oil landscape artist from Albuquerque, New Mexico. The paintings he completes in the field are sometimes framed and shown as they are when he leaves a location or used to produce more refined paintings in the studio. Outdoors he enjoys the spontaneity required to quickly capture the essence of a place, the most accurate color and value information possible and other transient elements that are present only for an hour or two. Damien’s engineering background informs the technical aspects of his work. He finds plein air painting the most challenging and rewarding art form.
