On my way to Pt Reyes and a new class on Saturday, Feb 23rd: California Impressionism.
Here is an oil that follows in this tradition. It has strong dark and light values but is colorful, with warms and cools, for maximum "light". American painters in the 1920's used this method and only today do we appreciate their efforts. Their paintings are powerful.

I will travel to Pt Reyes next week and will teach a class-join in and learn about California painters who lived for beauty and truth in paint and were very successful! I put distance, with warm and cool colors into my landscape to replicate the breadth of scenes that blow our socks off.
