About

In Michael Doyle’s paintings one will find intimate portrayals of interiors and landscapes.  Life’s richness is examined in each one of his paintings. The viewer can trace the touch of Doyle’s brush as it presses through wet paint with a light graze here and a heavy dash there. Michael Doyle uses tones and hues that are present in nature and his palette is as expressive as each one of his brushstrokes.  Doyle’s love of painting leads him to explore the relationships of objects to their surrounding environment through the study of light and color contrasts. By doing so, he recognizes the beauty in each landscape, still life, and interior he paints.
