Richard Beard
Artist, Illustrator, Graphic Designer

The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Psalm 19:1

Inspired by the beauty and wonder of nature, Godís creation. Richard takes many elements from nature, then composes them into one dramatic work of art.

Hi, thanks for your interest in my art. I am a native Floridian, as were my parents and grandparents. I am blessed to have been born into a family of artists. My Mom was an artist, as are my two brothers and one of my sisters. I admire the work of many artists, both the old masters and contemporary. One of my favorite artists is Rembrandt. I like his tendency to create dramatic effects by using strong contrasts of light and shadows. Zoltan Szabo and Tom Lynch are two of my favorite contemporary watercolor artists.

As a professional commercial artist for over 47 years, I have had the opportunity to work in many mediums such as watercolor, acrylics, pencil, pen and ink, and digital renderings. I select the medium that best portrays the mood of the art Iím creating. I try to render them in such a way as to capture the color, balance, lights, darks and contrast in a bold, yet serene work of art.

A few years ago I started creating art for myself. It has renewed the joy and excitement of art. I try to create emotion in my art, whether itís calm and peaceful, or filled with action.

Thanks again for visiting my site.
Richard
