Still life with books and candle
As a child in Doylestown, Pennsylvania, Justin Wood enjoyed drawing for fun, but it was a high school art class that introduced him to oil painting and proved to be a turning point in his decision to become an artist. Fascinated with traditional figurative painting in oil, the young Wood set out to find a college art program that would allow him to study the subject in depth. Ultimately, he enrolled in the illustration program at Syracuse University where he studied with the internationally respected, award-winning faculty members, Murray Tinkelman and John Thompson. That led to a life drawing class under the direction of Jerome Witkin, a realist figure painter and professor at the Syracuse University School of Art. For Wood, the opportunity to spend several sessions of a class working on a single drawing from a live model was invaluable; it gave him time to focus on drawing and learn how to capture the subtleties of light and shadow that distinguish traditional figurative painting. After graduating in with a BFA in Illustration, Wood returned to Doylestown where he worked for about a year and simultaneously began researching art academies that offered a classically based curriculum.
