By using the Girrard brush name, Thomas Kinkade achieved absolute artistic freedom. This freedom led to a joyful experimentation that resulted in numerous breakthroughs and advances in Kinkade’s artistic techniques and talents.
Robert Girrard, an early brush name for Thomas Kinkade, was a romantic impressionist whose subjects are exquisite in nature, applying his sophisticated use of unique color combinations yielding a soft, atmospheric effect to each canvas. The Girrard Style was influenced by early impressionistic art.
In Rainy Dusk, Paris I paint on a busy promenade where the residue of a light rain enlivens the colors of store-fronts and streetlamps. In some ways, when I put on my beret and paint as Robert Girrard, I feel transported to the Impressionist era. Perhaps that is why the nostalgic costumes and vintage cars seem so very right. My brush moves with an energy that reflects the life of the City of Lights.
