(Born 1950) "A plein-air impressionist painter from Sedona, Arizona, Gregory Hull's goal is to work outdoors and to stop working while the brushstrokes are still loose and energetic. He infuses his canvases with bright sunlight and conveys emotion through gestural brushstrokes. He also does portrait and figure painting including nudes, but his studio work is more polished and refined in appearance than his landscapes.
He studied with classically trained English portrait painter Alvin Gittins and earned an M.F.A. Degree in fine arts from the University of Utah at Salt Lake City. He also traveled extensively in Europe, studying the Old Masters, including a year in Spain when he became interested in plein-air painting. This interest was reinforced when he moved to Los Angeles in the 1970s. From there, he traveled extensively in his camper for subject matter and does the same from his studio in Sedona. He is most captivated by patterns of light and shadow.
In 1996, 1999, and 2000, the Redfern Gallery in Laguna Beach had a special exhibition of his work."
