Virginia Floyd

Landscapes and still life scenes are my primary subjects. I paint in my studio from photos that capture my attention, whether it is the glow of the sky, a reflection in water, or a silhouette of trees against a skyline.  

My paintings progress in layers, starting with an underpainting that lays in the basic shapes, and progressing with additional layers of color as the painting takes shape. I use glazes as the final steps to create a luminescence and depth. 

My style of painting is tonalism, with an overall mood of atmosphere or quietness.  They are generally of simplified subject matter, rather than great detail.  I use primarily warm hues with muted colors and soft contours to evoke a quiet, contemplative mood.
