Revisiting the landscape

Tierra and Land, 30x40in, o/c, by Daniel Ochoa
Two new paintings at Julie Nester Gallery. These are pastoral landscapes from West Sonoma County, California, where I grew up. The intent in the work is to illicit an emotional connection with place and time. Within the layers of paint there is writing describing specific memories, and a masking process is used to suggest multiple atmospheric conditions.

Painting and Drawing study

Ross Retrato Study, 20x16in, o/c, 2009
Study, charcoal on paper, 2010
Finished Painting and drawing study side by side. The painting is from 2009 and the drawing was done in 2010. I often revisit old reference photos and draw each day before painting.I consider doing multiple paintings of the same person but with a different approach.

Many of my paintings start with realistic charcoal studies. Drawing helps me get to know the realistic characteristics of the people I paint. During this process, I think about my connection to the person and how I want to translate those thoughts into a painting. This is a friend of mine Ross Bowns who is an artist in Northern California.

Park Record article by Scott Iwasaki

Dedos in cuarto Study, 12x9in, oil on duralar

 "Paintings and sculpture will take over the Julie Nester Gallery when "Figurative Perspectives," featuring the works of Daniel Ochoa and Tor Archer, starts its run Wednesday, Dec. 29, at 5:30 p.m..Both are influenced by their artistic upbringing.
While Ochoa has followed a different path from his formative training, Tor Archer has embraced his early influences and expanded on them."
