Erin Hanson Painting Plein Air

Plein Air Painting in the Paso Robles Wine Country

Tuesday, October 9, 2012

Setting up for my solo show "Colors of Paso" has led to spending a lot of time in Paso Robles during the past few months. I was able to find some time to create some plein air paintings while I was there. It's always nice to take some time from my busy schedule and just observe the landscape around me, concentrating on mixing a new array of beautiful colors from my limited palette.

Here is a small oil on board I painted, 12x12 in size.


ERIN HANSON is a life-long painter, beginning her study of oils as a young child.  Her passion for natural beauty is seen in her work as she transforms vistas familiar and rare into stunning interpretations of bold color, playful rhythms, and raw emotional impact. Her frequent forays into National Parks and other havens of nature include backpacking expeditions, rock climbing, and photo safaris.  Hanson's unique painting style has become known as Open Impressionism, which is now taught in art schools around the world. With thousands of collectors eagerly anticipating her work and millions of followers online, Hanson has become an iconic, driving force in the rebirth of contemporary impressionism, and she is quickly recognized as a prolific, modern master.
