Richard Yeager's paintings embrace a contemporary impressionistic style with an emphasis on capturing the dynamics of the scene, the quality of light and the essence of the subject. They exhibit a strong underlying sense of composition and superb draftsmanship. He prefers to paint landscapes ‘en plein air’ – outdoors on location – which seems to enhance the process of painting and provide the most profound opportunity to capture the soul of a place. Through his eye, hand and heart, he reveals a heightened awareness of every scene – giving them a lived-in touch, bathed in light.
His paintings are in numerous galleries, and private and corporate collections, and he is the recipient of many awards.
