Nathaniel Skousen resides
in Snohomish, Washington a small town about an hour from Seattle.
He lives in a 1920?s farmhouse surrounded by horses, deep mossy
forests, and rustic barns that continuously feed his artistic
imagination. Nathaniel is often found painting the beauty of
the surrounding mountains and rivers. He enjoys hiking and fly
fishing in high mountain destinations as well. While fly-sishing
is one of his favorite past times, his mind is continuously drawn
to the pursuit of a perfect painting.
Nathaniel was trained
in portraiture in college, and sought to learn anatomy from life.
He spent many hours drawing cadavers and studying anatomy and
physiology. It was while he was presenting some of his cadaver
sketches to a class that he first saw his future wife.
Nathaniel found many
useful teachers that guided him in understanding of many painting
fundamentals. It has been his relentless study of master artists
painting videos, however, that has further inspired him to paint
emotion, mystery, and intrigue.
