Paul Abeleira is a representational oil painter who embraces the classical tradition. Having studied under many instructors at academies in the United States, he applies a number of skillful approaches to achieve the effects he is after.
Even though his subjects range from stormy landscapes to exhausted nudes, he is known mostly for his food-inspired still life. This comes from his training and long career in the culinary arts. No matter the subject, he tries to capture in paint the simplicity of everyday in the most appealing way possible. Aside from painting, Paul also practices life drawing on a weekly basis, turning out dozens of charcoal figure studies per month. He is excited to share his gallery of all he has created since he last participated in the Tour.
