Dorene White Plein Air Artist

morning at Santa Cruz Island

Plein air painting - the act of painting on location - is ideal for my home town of Santa Barbara. We have a wonderful coastline with hills rising up. This combined with a mild climate that allows year-round outdoor work and a rich historical heritage, makes any artist here very blessed.

Please enjoy seeing my work and feel free to contact me with any questions.
