McKinley Gallery East hosts painter David Yapp. California Landscapes is a selection of paintings that document the landscapes of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. When working with oils, Yapp creates his paintings using a combination of brushes, palette knives, and sgraffito techniques to create a multi-layered relief to the painting. Working on location leads to a very “holistic painting experience.” All senses are engaged: sight, hearing, touch, smell and sometimes even the taste of the elements in the surrounding environment.
David Yapp currently lives in the western Sierra foothills, giving him ready access to hike and paint California’s exquisite mountain scenery. He developed a love for painting and sketching on location while studying wildlife illustration in Carmarthen, Wales. He now focuses on capturing landscapes primarily in oils and watercolor.
