Plein Air Painting


Bridal Veil Falls , Yosemite          PleinAir oil on canvas,  16 x 20 in.

This was painted in about 3 hrs from the meadow below, then finished in the studio. The canvas was previously toned with an Indian Yellow thinned with Mineral spirits. This serves as an underpainting that shines through to give a harmony and unity to the image.The color palette includes Alizarin Crimson, Cobalt Blue, Naples Yellow, Titanium White and Thalo blue.

I have been drawing for as long as I can remember. I have a minor in Visual Arts from UCSD where I received my BA in Biology. I am inspired by Nature and love hiking in California's Sierra Nevada and diving beneath the surface of the Pacific Ocean. I enjoy the interplay of painting Plein Air, being an outdoor photographer, and creating paintings in the studio.
