About Andy Reinhardt

IMG_9952 copy.jpg

After numerous drawing classes all through high school and a sculpture class art was always important to me. An art professor in college suggested graduate school.  But I chose the law profession and decades flew by.  I started painting again about 10 years ago.  I am primarily self taught at oil painting.  My focus has always been on recreating the process the old masters  - beginning with a brown wash surface, painting a cartoon or drawing on top of it and then adding colors and light which somehow hopefully magically creates a realistic presentation of the subject matter.   When I am not oil painting I am doing charcoal drawings or iPad sketches.
