Diana Constable, Lake County Impressionist.
I think of myself as more of a colorist using bold colors like the French Fauvist painters of
the early 20th century. I do not draw the image first, but simply start my paintings with blocks
of underpainting and rough images on canvas. I love colorful subjects and am known for my vivid
roosters, egrets, and grape paintings.
Diana was born in Illinois and lived in Texas, Marin and Sonoma Counties in California, and traveled the world
before moving up to Lake County seven years ago. She devotes her energy to painting, playing on the
Lake, her furried friends, and teaching painting.
