“Realism is not enough – what you take away and what you add to what you see are what transform a picture into art”

Patrick Palmer is a modern master of figurative art. His post-romantic nudes are not only exquisitely painted, but also dreamy, delicate and suggestive.

The Story of a Girl and a Crane

The Story of a Girl and a Crane

by Hu JunDi

He paints elegant, serene and beautiful Sichuan women. The attire is classical Sichuan Chinese, but there is an appeal that goes beyond. He does not use models. He paints the character in his mind, searching from a person in his life. He chooses the most wonderful moment in his mind and paints it. Catching a moment — this is the Chinese painting skill. It is much more difficult to do it with oil paintings. It took years of patient trial and error, along with his immense talent, to achieve this mastery.
