Welcome To dkilpatrickart
Welcome to the website of David Kilpatrick
On this site you will find works of Art created by me. I paint in acrylics and pastel on suede mat. I have been painting since 1986. I am also an occasional carver of soapstone. I am married with two children. I tend to paint character studies of subjects in which I strive to create compositions, whether they be human or animal that convey a particular emotion or an identifiable character trait of the subject. Since 2014 I have started to paint subjects with a metaphysical theme or spiritual nature to them. These often deal with themes of enlightenment and relate the metaphorical language of light, in the colour and composition. I first create my compositions in Photoshop, using various photo references to create the composition of an idea I have in my minds eye. My style is mainly realistic with a touch of abstraction, particularly in the background, or with a hint of fantasy as all is connected on a multidimensional level of consciousness. My main emphasis while painting is to create a subtle transition between the color tones, often adjusting or adding a temperature change in the small area of transition. This aspect of transitional change, I feel, allows my paintings to have a vivid glow and uniqueness to them. I hope you enjoy viewing the artwork as much as I did creating it. Thank you for showing an interest in this site. Wishing you light, love and truth on your journey.

Morning Flight_acrylic/canvas_36x36_12/20. I was inspired to paint this painting from a picture I took this past summer at Sargeants Bay in Sechelt.The rocky outcrop is from this beautiful location. I now live in Sechelt and I am passed every morning by several eagles as they patrol the shoreline in search of a meal.
