“From Dawn to Dusk” Photorealistic oil paintings by Evan Ventris
“Growing up in rural Northeast Iowa gave me a deep appreciation for the natural beauty in landscapes. This series of Iowa landscapes allowed me to showcase the beauty I see throughout the area. Some of the references I use for this series comes from photographs I take while driving old country roads searching to find just the right setting. Many times I find myself rushing to capture that perfect image before the awe inspiring colors and shadows disappear. Other photographs I have taken from my own back yard, with the rolling corn fields of family farms spread across acres in the distance”.
