John Caton Portrait Artist (Missouri, USA)
I began working almost solely in black and white which allowed me to perfect my drawing skills and powers of observation. Later, working with color has brought a depth to my work through the play of light and reflective color.
As an illustrator I work in all media, but I gravitate toward water mediums with its versatility in blending, glazing, and richness. To me art is a way of expressing the passion of life to the observer. I hope when you see my works you not only see the person but also feel their personality illuminating from the painting.

The ability to capture the appearance of the person I am painting is a small part of the work.
For a successful portrait, the nature and spirit must force the observer to begin to know the subject.
When you look at my work you not only see the person but also feel the personallity illuminating from the painting.
