Robert Sherrill is a prolific, dedicated painter and a generous, thoughtful teacher. He loves to paint Southern California landscapes and urban scenes and has become a bit of an icon himself, as he can so often be found painting in the Arroyo where the Colorado Street Bridge is a favorite subject. Robert was recently asked if he was tired of painting the bridge. His response applies to all subjects that draw a painter to canvas. “Quite simply,” he said, “I love the light. It is different at any time of day or night. Sometimes the sky is blue, but it can also be grey, green, pink, yellow. The shadows might be long and dark, or the whole thing vibrating with intense contrasts...and the season of the year gives more variety... You get the picture.”
He has been involved in teaching classes at Art Center since 1991 and shares his enthusiasm for painting with his students. His goal has always been to help students develop techniques, encourage individual style, and focus them on
their own particular area of interest.
His fine art paintings are currently shown at Aarnun Gallery in Pasadena.
