As the Old Masters did, Agerton uses only observation, Her own drawings, imagination and memory to create her paintings. By not using photographs, and only her own field studies she is able to better distill the essence of a scene and a evoke a sense of place. She enjoys using both direct and indirect methods of painting- that is using both opaque and transparent paint.
