About David Bottini

David Bottini ‘for Gabriel’ - -
A subjective viewpoint informing a classical approach to realism.

My approach begins in direct observation and is enhanced and developed in the studio using a traditional glazing approach. My work draws from my training in classical realism as well as my passion for a post-modern abstract sensibility in my composing a viewpoint.
My creative process starts on-site from direct observation that immediately employs a very sharp optical perception and imagination. I wander through a woods or along a stream or canal for hours before finding the perfectly balanced interplay of light and shadow and composition. I work a la prima, brush and paint as the only medium that touches the panel. Working small color studies first on paper as my first step getting ready to compose a loose and gestured paint sketch on the canvas. With a sketch in-place, I “block in” the masses of shapes and establish the volume and spatial elements within my painting. Over days or sometimes weeks I use numerous glazes (layers) of paint to describe the environmental effect and pictorial space I seek to create for my landscape. The multiple glazed layers give the work a characteristic depth and luminosity.
I strive to make a viewer aware of a fleeting moment of solitude in nature where nature’s quiet and environmental elements create a lasting impression of a specific & personal place and time… the romanced image of a cherished memory.
I sign my work 'Gabriel' in dedication to the lasting effect my Italian grandfather had on my love of nature and forests. www.forgabriel.com
