Specializing in Lowcountry landscapes and seascapes.
Largely self-taught Terry Brennan’s work reflects the beauty of the Lowcountry landscape with its weathered buildings, scenic waterways, shrimp boats, marshes, and its live oaks dripping with Spanish Moss. His pallet expresses the colors of the seasons and the changing light. “I enjoy the challenge of capturing sunrises and sunsets, the play of light on the water, and the shadows of a pine forest,” says Brennan. “Value and color harmony are critical to the success of my work. I keep the foregrounds in warm color and use cooler, grayer colors as the planes recede. With each landscape and seascape I attempt to capture the emotions and mood of that moment in time.”
An engineer by trade, Brennan retired to Hilton Head Island sixteen years ago and has taken workshops with noted plein air painters Tom Lynch, Irving Shapiro, Tony Couch, Charles Gruppé and Morgan Samuel Price. He has been President of the Art League of Hilton Head for the past three years and also served as past president of the Society of Bluffton Artists. His commissioned works hang in homes and businesses throughout the area.
