Douglas Newton is a realist painter specializing in contemporary still life. He paints in oil on canvas and works directly from life, not using photographs.
Douglas is noted for his colorful closeups of candy and their wrappers, capturing the reflections and transparency of the foils and cellophane. There is a pop-art influence in the paintings of candy.
He also paints still lives of food, toys, dolls and anything else that is visually interesting and evokes memories. His paintings have the rich beauty of oil paint, instead of the dryness of photo realism.
Douglas lives and works in Fort Greene, Brooklyn.
His paintings have been in numerous one and group shows and are in many private collections.
