Dan Simoneau at work

Dan Simoneau is an accomplished award-winning and published acrylic and watercolor painter specializing primarily in male figurative and maritime art.

Atmosphere and the effect of light on objects or persons inspires Dan.  His focus is light as it plays on the scene.  The realists, photo- and super-realists inspire him.  He aims to capture the essence of his subjects as truthfully as possible.  While his work may appear photographic, he usually paints in a somewhat loose manner with larger brushes.
