East Donner Rd 4 (Interlochen Series)

Rachael Van Dyke's avatar Rachael Van Dyke

My landscape work is a reflection of the colors and patterns found in the orchards and vineyards of the West Michigan and Traverse City area. I enjoy searching for areas with strong visual line, repetition of shapes and juxtaposition of elements in the land. Each painting is begun in charcoal “en plein air” on walnut or birch plywood. I then interpret the colors and patterns within the landscape as I complete the work in my home studio. The paintings are titled according to the road I drew from.
