Erin Dertner, Evening Calm, oil on canvas, serene evening view of the iconic Mendocino Bay and village, 40 inches by 60 inches, framed size 45 inches by 65 inches.
Long-time Mendocino plein air artist, Erin is proficient in oils with a palette knife, oils with brushes, watercolors, and acrylics.
Painting, studying and teaching the subject of light is Erin’s driving force. The cool shadows of the early morning and those that fall long and warm in the evening enliven her creative soul as nothing else. Subject matter is secondary to the sunlight itself, though her locations speak volumes about God’s wondrous world of color, drama and mystery.
