Karl Dempwolf to demonstrate on December 1
California artist Karl Dempwolf has a deep love of nature. When he sets up his paint box, he says, “It’s not really important that it’s going to turn into some fantastic painting. It’s just the act of being out in nature all by myself, sitting in God’s creation, and putting something down on canvas.”
Dempwolf spent his childhood in Germany before immigrating to the United States with his family. He says his mother always encouraged him to paint the grand Bavarian mountains they left behind. Thus began a long-lasting love of both art and landscape.
Karl will be working in oils demonstrating his own delightful, insightful style of California Impressionism.
Dempwolf’s colorful scenes evoke an impressionistic style by combining painterly brushwork with vibrant color. Dempwolf has dabbled in still lifes and portraits, but his passion remains in painting the land and the sea. He is always striving to make his work stand out by painting scenes that reflect “my awe of the masses, shapes, and design elements encountered in nature, as well as the inspiration I receive on a much grander spiritual scale.”
