Essay

Rossi's creation is an oil painting study in the Plein air movement of the Hudson River School of Artists. “Grand Teton Adventure” utilizes a warm color palette scheme including some warm Ultramarine blue, Yellow ochre, Cobalt violet and Phthalo Green . The dramatic forms and vigorous technique reflects the British aesthetic theory of sublime in nature. The painting began with an outdoor sketch in oils.  Light influenced the form of the mountains and trees. Illumination of the snow in the mountains demonstrated her attention to detail. Her preference for an image created at dawn led to this study of early light in Wyoming's Grand Teton National Park.
