Lake Tahoe Inlet
Painting - Oil Painting On Cradled Hardboard Panel.
Another oil painting in my ongoing "Lake Tahoe" series, "Lake Tahoe Inlet" measures 16 x 20 inches on a cradled hardboard panel 2 inches deep with black sides.
The original painting is available at the:
ART TRUCKEE Fine Art Gallery
10072 Donner Pass Rd., Truckee, California 96161 Telephone: 530 448 3423
The challenge is capturing many physical properties of light as it interacts with the water, reflecting, refracting, and the magnification of the light hitting the shallows producing intense light caustics. The texture of the rocks is also a challenge as Lake Tahoe granite boulders have very weathered and rough surfaces that catch the light and produce dark pits. In spite of the challenges, Lake Tahoe remains one of my favorite places to paint.
Do you have a particular view of Lake Tahoe in mind for a painting? I accept commissions for custom work.
