Michael Albrechtsen is a talented landscape and figure
painter. He strives to capture the drama and emotions from the
images of his experiences and memories of his travels. He enhances
this drama with skillful handling of color and light.
Michael teaches his students to paint what they see in that first six
seconds. When one can paint what they see in that brief first look at
something they are able to capture the freshness of the view. One decides
right away if it's beautiful. It's an initial reaction. You're drawn
to the drama of it.
Michael also tries to apply that six second test to his own
creations. Michael's paintings have a vivid, richness that few painters
are able to achieve.
