The Vibrant World of Erin Hanson Landscapes

Cedar Breaks National Park Impressionistic Landscape

Cedar Breaks National Park, near Zion in Utah, has inspired a new series of autumn-hued oil paintings. These October paintings are alive with color and motion, capturing the beautiful aspens and evergreens in thickly-applied brush strokes and intriguing compositions.

A rainy afternoon at the Lodge, deep in the canyons of Zion National Park, let me see the autumn-hued cottonwoods in a whole new light, their colors drenched and saturated in the low light.

Vibrant colors burst from the canvas in a kaleidoscope of light and texture. Each brush stroke is alive with motion and freedom, capturing the fleeting glory of this amethyst sunset.

 

Joshua Tree National Park Impressionistic Landscape

Bold desert color floods this painting of Joshua Tree National Park. After a good springtime rain, the beautiful California ocotillo cacti bloom with heavy red flowers, a perfect inspiration for a painting.

Vivid impressionistic color bursts from the canvas in a celebration of life! The brush strokes are free and loose, conveying a sense of movement and spontaneity in the painting. The dramatic shadowing draws you into the landscape, while the mosaic quality of the light captures the imagination.

 

Aspen Trees, Impressionistic Landscape

Aspen trees are alive with light and color in this original oil painting. Landscapes like this are best portrayed in a loose, impressionistic brush stroke, the painterly strokes almost careless in their freedom and beauty.
This painting is scheduled for display at the St. George Art Museum, as part of the Erin Hanson’s Painted Parks exhibition. This piece will be hanging from January 15th until May 28th, 2016.

 

Paso Robles California Landscape by Erin Hanson

Fine summer oaks drenched in color frame this idyllic peek into the countryside of Paso Robles. California’s wine country is lush with warm golden tones in the summer, the hills fading to purple and blue in the distance.

 

Sunset Wildflowers Impressionistic Landscape

This boldly-colored painting captures that last moment of sunset, when the whole world becomes tinted with golden-red light. The wildflowers seem to beckon you into the landscape, inviting you to explore beyond the mountain’s ridge before dusk finally descends.
