I am just like you. A boy who is always learning. A man whose soul is vibrant with inspiration and energy. A creative spirit that is expressive and joyful.

DerekRussellArtist.com was created to give you inspiration, empowerment, and an opportunity to see life through the eyes of an artist, so you too can live in a vibrant, inspired way.

I offer you my warm and inviting painting style. It is the result of a gradual evolution over the past three decades, beginning with my lengthy study of van Gogh, Monet, Gauguin, Rothko and others. During the last decade, my style has become unique in all the world, playing off my strength as a colorist, my passion for light and movement, and the balance and linearity of my brushwork.

I hand paint each color on the canvas myself. Each brush stroke applied one at a time with confidence.

I capture the feeling like no other artist. I call it "the energy of life."

I paint what I feel and consider myself to be an expressionist who paints my emotions, my passions, and my world. It is not so much what I paint, but how I paint it. With a working knowledge of color application and balance, I begin with an observation of the design and composition, the negative and positive shapes, then apply my colors with a sensitive hand. I utilize textures to help create a mood, and a variety of strokes, including impasto to emote strong emotion. By varying the direction of brushstrokes, I am able to add character, movement, energy, and life to the painting.
