LIGHT AS LIFE ENHANCEMENT
All around you are scenes, objects and people that if viewed in different light have beautiful, magical qualities. Paths that you travel many times can have special impact when viewed in different lighting. Look up. Exploring light at sunrise and sunset is my current theme which enhances colors, and adds hues not typical of mid-day. Cast shadows lend depth, character and mystery to the landscape. The deep shadows frame the scene that burn an image in the mind to be remembered with awe. A beautiful landscape can swell your being with a sense of reverence and well-being. Through these romanticized landscapes I hope the viewer can visualize and revisit their magical experience of the Tropics.

Dan Young/Artist HAWAII IMPRESSIONIST
The initial step is priming a canvas or panel with an exciting color tone to set the mood of the artwork. This tone unifies and creates the initial energy. Then translucent, bold color defines the image with the underlying color creating the aura around an object. Every tree, bush or rock seems to pulsate with a living energy. This loose, joyful Impressionist style feels like freedom from the mundane. This is my method of Breaking Free.
I truly hope everyone will find the courage to Break Free.
Dan Young has been painting for over 20 years in various mediums including Watercolor, Oils, Alkyds, Acrylics, etching, silkscreen, sculpting, mold making and monotypes on silkscreen.
The preferred mediums have become Acrylic on canvas or oil-on-board, with a style developed using all the previous education and experience.
Art Education includes many hours of private and workshop instruction with well known American artists including, Darrell Hill, John Cosby, Ken Auster, Cynthia Britain, Michael Oberneyer, John Budicin, two years of instruction with Hal Reid, and classes at UCLA/ Los Angeles, Cal State Northridge, Idylwild Art Institute, Mendocino Art Center. I owe a debt of gratitude to those willing to share their talents.
There have been many juried shows such as Scottsdale Civic Center, Scottsdale Art and Wine, Carefree Fine Art Festival, Scottsdale Fine Art Festival, Mill Valley Fine art and shows with Plein Air Painters of Hawaii.
The latest Plein Air and studio series include Hawaii Landscape Impressionism and California Impressionism in OIL. These OIL on board and canvas are my latest Breaking Free/risk-taking challenge. The romanticized landscapes are in the tradition of the early California Impressionists who were captivated by the light, atmosphere and beauty of California. Impressionism is one of the most popular schools of painters who often painted outdoors or "in Plein Air" How much better could it be than painting Tropical landscape in "Plein Air"
Invited to participate in the Laguna Plein Air Invitational 2011 Oct 9-16 2011
