Hello, I'm Daryl Price, Artist
I have always painted, the last ten years fulltime. Thick paint, influenced by the 'impressionists' seems to be from where my style has evolved over the years, the effects of light are endlessly fascinating to me and one day I'll get it right... although some people think that it is pretty good now having purchased several of my works each.
Hello from the land of the long white cloud, my art is more to me than a way to earn. It is the eternal search for perfection on a canvas, a big ask possibly and one that leaves an artist open to all kinds of criticsm but I thrive on that. New Zealand is my home, from where I have travelled and sold works in many parts of the world. From the old masters to modern times there are alot of influences on my works. Please feel free to comment..Daryl.
Comment By Mike Geers, Director, Art By The Sea Gallery - Devonport, Auckland NZ.
Devonport artist Daryl is unashamedly convicted of impressionistic tendancies. A fan of the masters and inventors of Impressionism such as Cezanne, Suerat, Monet and Vincent Van Gogh, Daryl has been a painter for over 25years and has sold in excess of 250 works since first picking up the brush. Having spent a season in Provence a lot of his Italian and French work found its roots there. On his return to New Zealand he continued to paint in this theme but adapting his viewpoint to the landscape he found in his extensive travels across New Zealand. (In particular places of interest to him are the Kaipara and Hokianga harbours Northland and the mountain ranges and hills of southern Canterbury. Daryl works with a thick palette of imported oils and when a work is completely dry finishes it off with a beeswax varnish.
