About the Painting

The coastline between Pt Reyes and Mendocino is some of the most beautiful in California. The land meets the sea with sharply defined boulders and steep rocky cliffs. When the sun sets the entire seascape is bathed in a rainbow of colorful hues.

"Coastal Lights" was created in the modern Open Impressionist style, with thickly applied and defined brushstrokes. Each color was mixed from a limited palette of only 5 primary colors. The thick, impasto paint lends additional dimension to the canvas. The piece was created on 1-1/2" canvas, with the painting continued around the edges. The painting arrives framed in a simple gold-leaf floater frame.

She has stuck to that decision ever since, becoming one of the most prolific artists in history. Erin Hanson's style is known as "Open Impressionism" and is now taught in art schools worldwide. 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.
