Canyon Lake Color - I pushed the range in this piece for my needs. Intensifying the shadows and reducing the color in the light somewhat offered me a statement I liked. I can see this as a large piece now.
Dan Robinson began to travel the road of a painter, a journey he set as he received his education at The Art Center College of Design in Pasadena CA. Beginning in the fall of 2009 this blog was started with the idea of continuing to pursue the craft of painting by completing small pieces quickly, allowing for experimentation and discovery within the visual language of paint. Dan has been an invited artist in such shows as, Plein Air Painters of America; Dixon Country; The American Art in Miniature exhibit at The Gilcrease Museum in Tulsa, OK; The Phippen Museum in Prescott, AZ and The Albuquerque Museum in Albuquerque, NM. Dan has been the recipient of numerous awards including The John F. and Anna Lee Stacey Scholarship, the Grumbacher Gold Medallion and an Award of Merit from The Oil Painters of America. You may subscribe to receive direct emails of Dan's paintings as the work is posted.
