Color fills Tracy Wright Avant’s world. Her use of the “Alla Prima” direct method of oil painting allows her to create on canvas stroke, hue-masterful floral still lifes, portrait, landscapes, and wildlife scenes.
Avant captures her initial emotion of her subject. “I want to transfer my feelings onto my canvas,” she says, “so that the end result will hopefully be embraced by the viewer. Every painting I do I regard as a wonderful new challenge of seeing light, design, form, line and color correctly. I’m truthful to what I paint. My painting is the result of a process which affords me an ever-deepening immersion into my future works.”
