About the Instructor:

Bruce Whaley has been drawing and painting for over 50 years.

Capturing the essence of the subject matter in landscapes and an accurate likeness in portraiture is his primary goal. Bruce’s landscape paintings tend to be inspired by lighting, atmosphere, and the natural beauty of the land. His scenes are created from everyday sights and events, personal experiences, and travels and are painted in his own realist style, using loose brushwork and simplified details. This leaves something to an individual’s imagination and allows everyone to “see” the art in their own way. Retiring from the regular workforce in 2015, Bruce is now creating art full-time, always trying to do a little better with each new work.
