The subjects favored by Nancy Craig are skies and trees and you will find both in many of her works. Her colors are sometimes monochromatic, sometimes vivid and bold and once in a while soft and pale. She has much admiration for Helen VanWyk even while knowing that her style might never be to paint her way - the Artist has still learned much by studying and watching her and reading her books. In her earlier years Nancy only seemed able to paint in total realism but now that is tempered with hints of impressionism. Her medium is always Oil - to her Oil is the very essence of painting. Nancy Craig loves the texture, the feel and luster of the paint and enjoys experimenting with it constantly as she applies it to canvas. Different brush techniques and some work with palette knife produce varied textures but always the intent is to put on canvas the excitement and beauty that she sees in the world around her.
