There are several key components that characterize the artwork of George Broomfield. Perhaps most important is his use of colour which directly impacts the viewer. His colours are bold and strong, never washed out or neutral. The content of his subjects are impressionistic so they become an interpretation of what the artist sees rather than a mirrored vision of the scene. He has certain favorite subjects that are returned to time and again, such as twisting trees, birds in solitude and cold fall skies. As you look at these paintings that make the landscapes come alive, they become visual allegory.
The artist had a very simplified and direct approach to his work: see it, capture it's impression, make it clear for those who wish to view it.
The artist lived at a time when change was all around him and for this reason, he sensed the historical value in his artwork. Many of his early subjects have been now lost to progress.
