Expressive Oil Paintings Capture the Colorful Hills of Los Angeles
California is known for its diverse and varied landscape. Not only does the Golden State feature shimmering seascapes and snow-capped mountains, but it’s also home to some of the most iconic cities in the United States. Artist Seth Armstrong captures the colorful hills of Los Angeles in his series of expressive oil paintings.
The Los Angeles native developed his creative practice in the Bay Area of California, earning his BFA at the California College of Arts in San Francisco. Now that he has returned home, Armstrong reconnects with his surroundings by capturing the city in striking oil paintings. These eye-catching images depict specific areas of Los Angeles under the sun and in the shade.
Similar to California Impressionism, the artist blends a range of striking hues into the canvas to convey the beauty of light and shadow. Additionally, the distinct color palettes reflect how the hilly cityscape transforms at different times of the day.
