About Donald McGibbon

Don was born in Bridgeport, Connecticut and has lived in Connecticut, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Illinois, Oklahoma, and now Virginia. Most of his school years were spent in the Chicagoland area. He graduated from Central State University in Oklahoma with a degree in Marketing and Commercial Art. He has worked as an editorial cartoonist, magazine cartoonist, Illustrator, Graphic Designer,Printing Coordinator, and as a design engineer. He spent a long rewarding career in Graphic Design. Don has drawn and painted since middle school and now paints full-time as a hobby since his retirement. In the graphics industry he always had to paint what someone else wanted and needed and now enjoys painting for himself. He has been inspired and motivated by the visual arts and photography, although he has left his photo skills behind for fine art painting. His art is mainly realistic, tonalist, and even impressionistic. Don's style has evolved from cartooning to realistic pen-and-ink. His primary media is watercolor followed by acrylic work.
He uses gouache a lot and pastels. He is saving oil painting for last because he wants to master the other medias first. He loves to paint farm and barn scenes, landscapes, rail scenes, and lately southwest scenes. He is planning to master stonework painting and already has a good start on it. He loves to draw all the details of a building structure before painting begins and it takes awhile to get it all right.
He works in the traditional manner direct approach to watercolor and tries to maintain rich,luminous colors. He says he is working towards professional watercolor and pastel organizations membership but he is 'not quite good enough' but he is enjoying working towards his goals everyday. Since he picked up his brushes and started painting for himself he has sold many originals that are in private collections all over the US and even Germany. He hopes to build his own studio building next to his house someday.
