Scott Hammond is a contemporary artist from Metro Detroit working in pastel.
His primary focus is on themes of nature and compelling scenes of life.
He also works in oil, preferring a palette knife.
Scott is self taught and began art as a way to provide balance with his working career.
In 2010 he began in earnest using different mediums and has refined his work to mainly pastels and oils.
The impressionist masters in the great galleries of Europe influenced him. He gets inspiration from themes of nature, and images that capture striking experiences of everyday life. He enjoys the challenge of trying to capture the colors, lighting and spirit of the scene.
