Jeff Jamison, 1958 | Impressionist Plein Air painter





Jeff Jamison is an award winning oil painter whose painting style is built on superb drawing skills in a process he calls controlled chaos. He uses no secret techniques or materials, choosing instead to paint in the traditional processes used by the Old Masters. Jeff feels that by working in this manner, using the same tools and materials as the great painters like Velazquez, Sargent and Sorolla, the only thing standing in the way of arranging those materials into truly great painting is Jeff Jamison. Along with that comes the sobering realization that one may never paint on a level of a Sargent or a Sorolla but Jeff loves the challenge and feels it is his personal responsibility to get out of bed every day and try to do just that.





















































Jeff Jamison was born in West Memphis, Arkansas.
Currently residing in Murfreesboro, Tennessee and Folly Beach, South Carolina.
Associate Member, Oil Painters of America (OPA).

Nato a West Memphis (Arkansas) Jeff Jamison è un pittore di olio premiato il cui stile di pittura è costruito su eccellenti abilità nel disegno, in un processo che chiama caos controllato. Egli non utilizza tecniche o materiali segreti, scegliendo invece di dipingere nei processi tradizionali utilizzati dagli antichi maestri. Jeff ritiene che lavorando in questo modo, utilizzando gli stessi strumenti e materiali come i grandi pittori come Velazquez, Sargent e Sorolla, l'unica cosa in piedi nel modo di organizzare questi materiali in vero grande dipinto è Jeff Jamison. Insieme a questo arriva la realizzazione che fa riflettere che uno può mai dipingere su un livello di un Sargent o di un Sorolla, ma Jeff ama la sfida e si sente è la sua responsabilità personale per alzarsi dal letto ogni giorno e cercare di fare proprio questo.
