We love Doug Reina for the distinctive coastal scenes that he paints - historic houses, boats, cottages, and beaches. His artistic technique is superb. One of the things we find unusually striking about his paintings are the colors that he uses - so bright and vibrant that they permeate his scenes with vitality. In addition, he has a beautiful way of capturing the textures of the subjects that he paints - the rippling of the water, the smoothness of a boat hull, the softness of the sand. Doug was raised in a family of artists and studied with notable painters Joseph Reboli and Christian White. Doug's favorite method of painting is outdoors on location, or plein air painting, as it is often called. Doug was born, raised, and currently lives on Long Island.
