Medium: Open to any medium – Palden will work in oil
Palden Hamilton demonstrates and narrates a still life painting of spring flowers. Palden is a proponent of honing one’s observational skills through painting small, controlled setups. Being able to paint humble subjects accurately and beautifully is a gateway to understanding and appreciating greater nature.
Born and raised in Maryland, Palden Hamilton attended the Gilman School, where he studied under Betsey Heuisler. After receiving his B.F.A. from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2002, he continued his education at the Art Students League of New York, where he studied under Ron Sherr, Harvey Dinnerstein, and Mary Beth Mckenzie. There he was awarded a Merit Award in Realism and the Phylis T. Mason Grant.
Hamilton has done a range of commissioned portrait work since returning to his hometown of Baltimore. He was notably commissioned to paint Maestro Yuri Temirkanov, the musical director of the St. Petersburg Philharmonic Orchestra in Russia. In 2008, 2017, and 2018, he was awarded Certificates of Excellence from the Portrait Society of America.
