Richard Diebenkorn

When I was studying for my A level Fine Art and Printmaking a few years ago, my old grouchy tutor suggested Richard Diebenkorn and Sean Scully to me. He stated that my painting and collagraphy was in the same vein as these two artists. I soon borrowed a huge book based on the Ocean Park series of paintings by Diebenkorn. Needless to say that I think his work is sublime and has been a huge inspiration to me in my creative work. I admire the abstract within his paintings and find the Ocean Park series very fluid. Some people think that they are out of style but I think this adds to the attraction to me. They remind me are ruins and dereliction but in all, they are paintings of bright sunny California.
