As a child, my favorite type of drawing to create was seascapes. I also collected turtle figurines until I was 12. This is a look back to that simpler time of my life. I drew upon my childhood simplicity for the background and my adult complexity as I created the many glazes that compose the turtle.
Dalton Sexton is a traditional artist that although proficient in all media, he prefers to work in inks combined with acrylic washes. He enjoys capturing wildlife, landscapes, and architecture as well as faith based works. He has actively been creating full time while battling narcolepsy since July 2009 when he created "God and Country", an acrylic piece depicting the American flag draped over the Holy Bible. He likes to work in bold and vivid colors with an illustrative quality. The most common colors in his works include bold blues, greens, and reds. His favorite color happens to be violet though you will see it in his dress more often than in his works.
