Whitney Portal Waterfall - Frances Nichols

Frances NicholsVisual experiences begin with light, and my intention is to portray the effects of light on the landscape. The California Impressionists, in whose tradition I follow, were determined to capture the true effects of light and its fleeting changes. Like them, I paint an “impression” rather than render fine detail, resulting in unfocused color and form creating the image. My subject matter is the coast, the Eastern Sierras, and the desert.
