Artist Statement
for Riana van Staden
Riana van StadenI work mostly in oil and some paintings in acrylics. My trademark is variety. I paint subjects ranging from realistic landscapes, seascapes and portraits to anything else I see and inspire me. I need variation and cannot paint the same thing over and over.

I am a photographer, some paintings are done from reference material, others just happen.
How long do all of you keep your references...are you partial to particular ones which you may use, time and again ?
Graeme I love old run down shacks, this is great. I keep folios of ideas and pictures cut out of magazines or photos I`ve taken and always revert back to some... view answer
