John Clayton - Cottages, Provincetown
    "When I was young my brother got a set of oil paints. He never used them so I began to use them. The way they felt and what I was able to express made me instantly hooked. I always had wanted to paint a Landscape. Meeting artists on the cape showed me how to think about painting a landscape. For me the truly the thrill of painting anything is to be out in nature and have the experience of being outdoors and painting from life is the most interesting part of painting.

    My approach to painting is simple I work with a brush or a palette knife. I start with large masses of color spots and begin relating them one to the other. Until they begin to express what I visually have been studying. Much like the way a conductor arranges his orchestra."
