Rodgers Naylor


Rodgers works “alla prima,” usually beginning with a warm tone underpainting and completing a painting in one session.  Interested in the effects of light and shadow and warm and cool colors, he paints expressively and decisively, both in the studio and in plein air.  He is especially drawn to scenes of human activity, so many of his paintings involve figures in the context of a landscape.

Rodgers Naylor spent his childhood in rural Maryland and since then has lived many years in the West and Midwest. He studied art at The Atelier in Minneapolis and at the Art Students League in Denver. Rodgers is a member of the American Impressionist Society, the Art Students League of Denver and Plein Air Artists of Colorado.
