An example of fine art by Alane Levinsohn

Most recently, I’ve devoted myself to drawing and painting the figure from life.  I feel that working directly from life allows the personality of the sitter to emerge.
I also draw inspiration from landscapes and florals and love the abstract quality of the desert topography and the vibrant color of florals, a good excuse to finally use cadmium orange directly from the tube!
I attended the California College of Arts and Crafts in Oakland, now known as California College of the Arts.
Just before graduation she had the opportunity to live in Brussels, Paris, and Frankfurt and spent three years traveling through Europe. I took classes at the school of fine arts in Brussels, and while in Paris, the Louvre became her favorite destination. Upon returning to the States, she worked as a fashion illustrator for department stores.
I have exhibited locally and nationally in many juried shows Including the Oil Painters of America Salon Show in 2016. My work has been shown at Saga Gallery in Montrose, Debra Huse Gallery in Laguna Beach, and Randy Higbee Gallery in Costa Mesa among others. I participated in the 2016 Open Studio Art Tours and plans on so again in 2017.
