Oil and Acrylic
Growing up in the Sacramento area, Yolanda has seen many changes over the years. While many undeveloped areas have disappeared, there are still beautiful scenes to be found as she reveals in her paintings. Using rich, vibrant colors she creates beautiful oil and acrylic paintings of local landscapes. Viewers often remark about how peaceful her paintings are and are often reminded of places they have been.
Yolanda enjoys working with a variety of mediums and techniques, and the process of applying paint to canvas is very important to her. She often uses palette knives or lets the paint drip and run to achieve interesting effects. She feels her paintings are most successful when the painting process is just as interesting as the image, and viewers are intrigued by what is happening on the canvas
