About the Painting

This oil painting captures the colors of Carmel with thick, impressionistic brush strokes. The contrast between the sunset-colored rocks and the turquoise waves creates a sense of movement and excitement within the piece. Erin Hanson's modern style of painting is called Open Impressionism, and it involves placing brush strokes side-by-side, without layering. The effect is a stained-glass or mosaic look to her oil paintings.


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.
