Summer shadows curve over this dusky golden hillside of summer. The cool green undertones of the canvas make the painting glow with a subtle light, while the thickly applied, painterly brush strokes are evocative of a Van Gogh expressionist landscape painting.
Hanson's modern blend of impressionism, plein aire technique, and expressionism have been heralded as a new style: Open Impressionism. These stylized and abstract landscapes blend the painterly effects of distinct brush strokes with a clean-cut, mosaic tile effect of laying brush strokes side-by-side without layering. Hanson uses large piles of oil paint, without any additives or gels, and uses only a brush to build up the heavy texture seen in her paintings.
