Sharon's Story

I graduated with a BA in Fine Art from Westmont College in 2006, and continued my studies at the Denver Artists League.

In 2010 my husband and I moved back to Santa Barbara where we are enjoying life with our two rambunctious children.

I feel very blessed to live in such a beautiful area with so many natural inspirations. Tall palm trees contrasted against the sky, seaside cliffs, adorable bright buildings, and quaint little towns.

My goal is to isolate and build upon things that I find beautiful, things that others may have overlooked.
I paint using an alla prima technique, painting wet-on-wet usually in a single layer, and in a single sitting. I really hate to stop working on a painting before I'm finished with it, so this approach suits me perfectly!

I start out with a pretty detailed pencil sketch on my chosen painting surface, then I add a thin oil wash, usually burnt sienna, just to give it some tone.

Then work from dark to light, or if the sky is very prominent I complete that area first, and then continue the dark to light approach to the rest of the painting.
You can find more information about my process,
palette and tools, as well as videos and demos on my instagram page
