Using the “golden section”—a harmonious use of space employed by many Old Masters—to achieve his compositions, Nolan P. Benner Jr. incorporated intense, bold brushstrokes with vivid colors in his acrylic and oil impressionist landscapes.

It gives me a feeling of accomplishment. It’s very satisfying to create something that didn’t exist before,” he said.
