C. Keith Whitelock

Hometown: Salisbury, MD

A festival participant since 1984, C. Keith Whitelock is a native of Somerset Co. MD and the subjects of his first paintings were the working boats of local watermen and the surrounding landscapes.  After time spent as a public school art teacher, graphic artist & draftsman, he has made a career of capturing these Bay images in watercolor, oils, & acrylics. His paintings combine a balance of careful detail and artistic brushwork. He has a series of shows on YouTube (Watercolor Workshop) that allows viewers to watch “over his shoulder” as demonstration paintings are done. He regularly crews on a restored, retired Skipjack for inspiration and close contact with his subjects.
