Vivid Detail: Painting by Bev Robertson

A painting of a flower by Bev RobertsonUntitled

Bev Robertson is a member of the Canadian Federation of Artists and a painter who works in florals, landscapes, and other figurative subjects. Bev takes an exuberantly painterly approach to each of her works, rendering each subject in vivid detail.

Looking through Bev’s gallery of floral paintings, comparisons to the work of Georgia O’Keefe seem obvious - though Bev tends to pull out the focus a little bit, painting the intricate details of a plant’s petals and stems as well as interior shadows and light. Bev’s seascapes capture different bodies of water in an interesting range of moods – from calm waters reflecting bright blue skies, to deep green stormy seas.

The artist also works with animals, portraits, and still-life imagery, crafting paintings that use a unique style suited to each subject. In particular, her paintings of scenic landscapes and vintage, rusted-out cars remind me of some paintings by David B. Scott, celebrating the beauty in both the ordinary and the extraordinary.
