As a field specialist assigned to the Orient, Larry Wilkinson came to appreciate the brush techniques, inks and colors used in Asian painting. His interest in spirituality is expressed in his representation of the archetypes of animals and their ideal characteristics as contrasted with the special assets of plants and flowers. The animal spirit paintings are painted on the delicate rice and mulberry papers imported from Korea and China. The brush techniques meld the tight realistic with spontaneous flourish of essential representation.
Accomplished in most mediums, Larry also concentrates on his sport fishing oil and watercolor paintings and plein air painting.
Celebrating fly fishing and wildlife, Larry's paintings are inspired by beautiful landscapes and the passion that brings us to them.
