An adventurous plein air painter who backpacks with his supplies to some of the most beautiful places on earth, Mark Boyle is “on a constant quest for that perfect subject to paint.” Many of Mark Boyle’s oil paintings are inspired by his own outdoor adventures – he’s a true outdoorsman, taking in nature through hiking, backpacking and fly-fishing. Living north of Seattle provides easy access to these recreational activities, and his adventures find their way onto his canvases. His friends find themselves in various scenes, depicted as gathered around campfires, or clam-digging in the twilight, or fly-fishing on some stretch of rugged mountain river.
In my early years, I explored ravines and woods near my house, often lost in another world and late for dinner. A serious interest in painting developed at 11 years old. As I recall, my first painting was of a rainbow trout. My parents hired local artists to instruct me privately during my teen years. A person who really taught good basics was Carl Christopherson. In painting lessons, Carl taught me to divide objects into shapes and planes with hard and soft edges. Nature impassions me. I am on a constant quest for that perfect subject to paint. During my outdoor adventures, such as hiking or fishing, I am inspired by the things I find. It is important to me to bring home my experiences and share them with others in a painting. Some of the landscapes I paint are so remote that most people can’t view them. One of the most rewarding experiences is to set up an easel on a high mountain meadow and capture the true colors found there. Through photography, I’ve documented many of my trips into the wilderness. I later use these as references in my paintings. The mediums I use are primarily oil, pastels, and watercolor.
In 2005 & 2012 Boyle was commissioned by Alaska Airlines to design a signature airplane featuring a large King Salmon across the entire fuselage. It was dubbed “Salmon-thirty-Salmon,” the most complex paint scheme flying on an airliner. He has also designed and created complex paint schemes including 8 Disney airplanes and currently works as a principal designer at Teague Associates.
