Jeff Stanley loves to paint both in nature and in the studio.  When starting a painting on location, he paints with slow drying  Open Acrylic paint.  He usually returns to the same location at the same time of day once, twice, three times, - as many times as it takes for the painting to look and feel complete.  Most paintings will later get refined  in the studio.  

             When starting a painting in the studio, Jeff uses professional grade acrylic paint.  He might work from pencil drawings, a smaller painting done on location, reference photos, or simply by starting with color and seeing where it goes. 

​               In order to stay mentally fresh and achieve maximum beauty in his paintings,  Jeff believes in the importance of snacking and napping.
