Painting - Main Page

In 1988, after completing a BFA at the Corcoran School of Art in Washington DC, Dominic established a professional photography studio along with his wife, Melissa Schelling. Then in 1992 he took up painting, and his work grew directly from his already well defined photographic style (see Photography). From design and composition, to color, texture and tonality, the progression was a natural development in his career as an artist.

Starting with works on paper in gouache (an opaque watercolor paint), he progressed to large acrylic paintings on unstretched canvas displayed as scrolls with wooden hanger bars.
