R. W. “Bob” Goetting is a third generation Californian born in Sacramento who has painted scenes from California and around the world for nearly forty years. He had the opportunity to study the artwork of master painters in London, Amsterdam, Madrid, Paris, Florence and Rome. Although his focus has been Central California and its beautiful coastline, his trips to Europe have provided an additional dimension to his art in terms of subject matter and application. Bob works primarily on canvas in oil over acrylic. He has used this technique for twenty five years, allowing for interesting textural possibilities and complex color layers. He is an award winning artist and his work is in national and international collections.
