My name is Alan Thompson. I am pursuing a career in concept art, and illustration. I focus primarily on landscape, or environments. I have used traditional mediums for many years, and just recently started working with some of the digital painting programs, and Photoshop.
my love of nature has a lot to do with my subject matter. I grew up in the small town of Lyons, thirty miles south-east of Salem. My family and I lived on the river, and I spent most of my childhood exploring the woods a water. Now that I live in town, I often find myself wanting to escape back to my roots. Though this isn’t always possible, I have found the next best thing is to loose myself in a landscape painting.
