Colorado Plein Air painter Dan Young recently approached Elyse Hutchinson Design for a new look for his online portfolio. After having the same design since the website’s inception, Dan was ready for a fresh, new look that better reflected his distinctive style.
Though Dan is a landscape painter, he likes introducing hints of man’s presence in the landscape.
“Sometimes I feel I’m in a race to paint a disappearing way of life. It’s hard to watch so many of the family farms and ranches being swallowed up by development.”
Young clings strongly to the importance of painting from life. He feels painting from life was the most important stepping stone for his career. Most days you can find him painting along a backroad or beside a mountain lake.
