Steven Parton is an award winning painter, educator, and artist member of the Salmagundi Club. A career as an illustrator and designer for books, films, television, and Broadway musicals has evolved into that of a painter. He is known for insightful portraits, and offer classes at his studio. He is also on the faculty of the Silvermine School of Art, and the Westport School District. He was awarded an Art Students League of New York scholarship to study at the School of Visual Arts in New York City. He paint in oils in a traditional renaissance manner to give his subjects as much richness as possible. This is an indirect method, building up a monochrome grisaille underpainting over which he gradually adds color with both transparent glazes and full bodied color. It offers very delicate tonal variations impossible with other painting methods.
