Kinnett, Doug. Shepherdstown 21. Oil on Wood. 1973.

Doug Kinnett

Shepherdstown 21, 1973

Oil on Wood

12 × 15 inches

This painting was done in 1973 when Doug was an art student at Shepherd College. His professors were constantly trying to refrain Doug’s use of color. So, as you can see, this painting is muddy in color but makes up for it with thick use of paint and a very textured surface that still makes you want to touch it
