artist spotlight / teil duncan

Recently I came across the beautiful, cheerful work of Teil Duncan and immediately fell in love. Duncan lives in Charleston, South Carolina, and paints her surroundings - primarily focusing on beach scenes and abstract figure studies.

While most of her original paintings are sold out, there are a few original figure study paintings that went live on her website this morning, and there are a few prints in her online shop or at Furbish Studio. Judging by her blog, it looks as though she's busy restocking her shop and I can't wait to see her new paintings.

I'm noticing a trend in the artwork I've been drawn to lately... it's vibrant, colorful, and relatively abstract. It also features beachy, vacation scenes... I think I just want to surround myself with vacation vibes forever :)

While her beach scenes are beautiful and lighthearted, there's something really special about her figure study series, and how she's able to capture the female form.
