         Art by Richard R. Russo

     businesses of Clifton.

    The painting technique starts with acrylic paints, however these
    paints are handled just as one would paint oils.   Colour's are
    modeled and layered with gloss water-based varnish glazes until
    the total painting is complete.  The result is a painting that
    reflects rich colour and brilliant luminosity that envelopes
    intense real-life representation.  The process takes time and
    delivers nothing short of that of an oil medium.

    Most paintings on this page are available for sale.  Please feel

 Elizabeth Vittori / Jack and the Moors 
 This painting is executed in a Water-based French Gouache Paint.  The nature of this medium is very similar to water-colour, however it can build into a very opaque consistency.  The client wanted a mood and temperament that reflected a realism, but painterly quality.  Opting for something other than Oils or Acrylics, delivered what the client had wished.  The subject was a steeped , kind and loving heart.  The Client wanted these elements captured in the painting.   SOLD

  Dwayne Nitz, Co-Mayor of Clifton : "Many thanks for the
  painting you've brought to our home.
Our family  has put a lot of
  love into this house over the past 10 years from restoration, to
  renovation, to additions, etc... It's funny, I started renting this
  house in 1997 and was sad to move out in spring of 2000. The
  day I moved out, my wife (then girlfriend) said, "You'll be back,
  you belong in this place". I thought it was a nice thing to say at
  the time, but it proved to be more  prophetic. We ended up buying
  it in 2001, getting married, adding on with our own hands, and
  raising a family within. Everyone values home - but we have a
  rich history with ours and
your painting distills so much of
  what we feel about this place.Thank you.
