David Yapp is VL Magazine Artist of the Day

© Cypress Trees In The Dell By David Yapp

"I grew up in rural southern England. My youth was spent exploring and observing nature and the changing scenery, seasons and weather patterns of my home county of Wiltshire. The landscapes and towns of the county are rich in history and have fed the artistic hearts and minds of artists and writers such as Sir John Constable, J. M. W. Turner and Thomas Hardy.  Since moving to California in 2001, I predominantly paint plein air, directly on location, working in oils.Through the use of distinctive brushwork that varies from thin passages of color to thick impasto, I aim to capture the essence of the subject and my emotional response to it." - David Yapp
