Dot Bunn is a full-time studio oil painter who lives and works in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. She has a strong commitment to working with and teaching traditional methods of painting. Dot believes that spontaneity and intuition are only useful when paired with a strong background in drawing and value management. She is committed to merging the lessons of those who have gone before her as well as embracing the latest tools of technology.
Dot states that “Good paintings are the result of intelligent planning and the endless study of technique and process. My paintings are thoughtfully developed by design, with preliminary drawings using traditional methods of composition built on the geometry of rectangles much the same as was done by painters dating back to the Renaissance. I enjoy the challenge of building a composition that works two-dimensionally while depicting reality.”
