"When I paint I use color theories from the French Impressionists, using transparent layers for depth and richness of color."
Beginning in 1985, Gordon Haas worked in New York on illustrations for book jacket covers, children's books and magazines. After about five years, he decided to paint full time. Haas paints landscapes of Bucks County, France and Italy in oil on panel. He uses color theories similar to the French Impressionists for developing mood. By using the layering techniques of the Dutch masters, he is able to achieve visual depth in his work. He sketches and paints in his studio and on location. Haas runs art galleries in Lambertville, New Jersey and New Hope, Pennsylvania, showcasing his art.
