Oil painting by Nora Dewey
Painted from a photo taken in October several years ago. It was my first time traveling by myself down the eastern side of the Sierras, so I took many detours to see the countryside.
Item must be picked up at the Off Track Gallery. Arrangements will need to be made between artist and customer
"June Lake" oil painting
I have lived in North County all of my life, and traveled up and down California. The California coast is my favorite place, and inspires me with its beautiful views and gentle light. Painting allows me to express this love, and I hope viewers will sense a similar emotion when viewing my work.
I paint mostly from photographs, as a camera best captures quickly changing scenes and light. Occasionally I will paint "en plein air", which sharpens my ability to accurately see color and helps me to concentrate on basic shapes and composition.
