More images of Charlene Lehto’s work coming soon!
Charlene is known for her sweeping skies and vivid colors, however, it is the interplay of light and shadow that interests her the most. Painting rather rapidly to achieve a freshness of color and a sense of spontaneity in both watercolor and oils, she chooses the medium and the style that best captures the mood of the scene.
The greatest benefit of painting, “is that you learn to see more beauty and detail in everything around you, whether in the bloom of a flower, a magnificent sunset, or the bark of a tree. Small things, that might go unnoticed like the shadow patterns on a fresh snowfall, or the reflections in a puddle of water present creative opportunities and challenges for a painter.”
