Canadian Artist Rene Thibault
"My primary concern in approaching a painting is the subject’s potential for use of pattern. Deriving inspiration from patterns in natural or man-made forms, I attempt to create an appreciation of the dynamic qualities inherent in those forms. The compositions usually consist of a simplicity of major elements realized through a complexity of tonal and textural patterns. My visual statements are a culmination of combining those strong patterns with a sense of fine detail.
I’ve been inspired by the work of many artists, of diverse styles. On absorbing what I’ve admired in their paintings, I allow my work to evolve reflecting not so much the influence of particular artists, but rather certain aspects of their combined influences."

Linear Perspective SIMPLY PUT
The “It Factor” All Too Often Overlooked
Whether you’re an artist or designer, student or professional, Rene Thibault’s practical guide expertly outlines how combining linear perspective with artistic license can be valuable in visualizing three-dimensional forms. Linear Perspective SIMPLY PUT is presented in a fresh and intuitive manner, with freehand templates to provide controlled flexibility. As the author notes, the book’s goal is to “visually inform and inspire by simplifying key aspects of perspective”. With over 280 instructive schematics and figures, this book presents a continuum of techniques, hints, and variations, from starting with a simple cube to developing complex structures using three dimensions. The figures (examples) included in this book are illustrations and paintings selected from the author’s personal archives.
