Joshua Hill - Paintings

For twenty years, Joshua Hill, also known as BlueJoshua, has been raising a family and painting in Savannah. Working as a muralist and faux finisher, he has always sought new inspirations. Surrounded by "leftover" paints from his many projects, he began painting on canvas. As a self-taught artist continuing his search for a voice for his creativity, he studied the conversations begun by Claude Monet and the Impressionist movement.

Over the past five years, Joshua has been developing "Folk Impressionism". Building on the foundations of the masters, he seeks to capture light and its effects. Joshua uses a "drag technique" which allows for a "building up" of paint and the ability to capture beautiful images with contrasting by color. He continues the discoveries Monet was making in Giverny.

Influenced by life on the coast, Joshua paints light, water and life. He is always striving to understand the complex and simplify.
