CCAA’s Demo Artist, Jan. 28: Scott Hamill

Scott will be doing a demo and discussion on his process for using gouache to capture quick on location sketches. He will share his compact equipment set up and discuss materials that he uses in the field.

Scott feels fortunate to have found an outlet for his artistic expression in the pleinair painting tradition. As a native Californian Scott has lived most of his life in and around the ocean and mountains of this beautiful state. He has developed a strong connection to the water and land while surfing along the Pacific coast and fishing, backpacking and canoeing in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Scott’s goal is to share this connection with those who view his art. In his plein air paintings Scott hopes to capture the mood or essence of a place and allow the viewer to experience the beauty of our natural world. He uses a limited palette of colors in oils, which helps harmonize the painting as well as adding the challenge of mixing all other colors from these few. Scott’s painting gear fits into a backpack, which allows him the freedom to get off the beaten path while scouting for locations to capture on canvas.  Scott’s paintings have been juried into a number of exhibitions and shows throughout the country. He is honored to have his work in private collections throughout the U.S. and abroad. Scott is very excited to have his work decorating the Lodge at Pebble Beach and their newly built Fairway One project. Scott enjoys sharing his painting experience and techniques and teaches several plein air painting workshops throughout the year. Scott lives near Santa Cruz, California with his wife and two children.
