Kyle Stuckey- Patina, Oil, 20 x 16 inches

Kyle Stuckey

Kyle Stuckey, born 1987, a member of the Putney Painters, honed his skills with nationally-acclaimed artists Richard Schmid and Nancy Guzik.

Influenced by his study of historical artists including Waterhouse, Bouguereau, Sargent, Zorn, and Alma-Tadema, Kyle has has developed and refined his style, working with oil in impressionistic realism. Today, he enjoys painting an array of subject matter: people, places, and things.

Kyle would describe his style this way: “I paint in the way I see my subject matter, trying to mimic the way the human eye sees. Not everything is in focus at one time. Regardless of what my subject matter may be, in my paintings I focus on what I find inspiring in that subject. This way the viewer can see my vision and perhaps share in that experience. At the same time, I want my paintings to have visual variety in detail and texture by using the full potential of the oils with the variations of texture and transparency.”

Kyle has spent much time traveling around the world, painting as he goes. Originally from New Hampshire, Kyle has also spent time in Asia, Europe, Central America, and the U.S. west coast. He currently lives in Charleston, South Carolina.
