"Oakfield Pasture" - An Elaborate Painting by Michael Fratrich
The Art of
Michael Fratrich

On this page you may browse Michael Fratrich's Available Paintings. Michael's paintings are separated into two distinct styles. Michael offers highly elaborate paintings, and an extraordinary selection of alla prima painitngs.

Michael's highly elaborate works are painted on linen using 'indirect' methods and 'Old Master' techniques. These paintings often require months of effort to craft. Michael feels the effort is worthwile, as his highly elaborated works have a very distinctive 'museum quality' that discriminating collectors appreciate. ...The alla prima paintings are painted using 'direct' painting methods like plein air painters commonly use. These works are usually painted on panels to achieve the desired effects.

NOTE: There are always more Fratrich paintings in the Gallery than appear on the website.
