"Three Pools" by artist Lessa Clayton
ARTIST LESSA CLAYTON BIO
Lessa Clayton has been a full-time painter for the last few years. In reality, she tells us, she’s been painting all her life. Landscape is her favorite subject, and Oregon provides an abundance of subjects. Lessa travels around the state taking photos and then uses them as the basis for her paintings. Three Pools was painted using a photo she took when hiking the Opal Creek Wilderness area. Three Pools is a popular swimming hole on the North Fork of the Santiam River. The water is crystal clear and the color of the water is a lovely green blue.
When Lessa began painting, she used acrylics because the quick drying time and clean-up appealed to her. She has since switched to oils which lets her experiment with layers of glazes, something that can’t really be achieved with acrylics. She loves the color depth possible with layers of transparent colors.
