Ted Yao

Carl enjoyed a visit with Toronto artist Ted Yao on his recent visit to Ontario, Canada. Ted enjoys exploring different media, including oils, watercolors, pen & ink, pastels and prints. Shown above is an 8"x10" oil painting entitled Prickly Pear, Sun City West. Ted is a retired lawyer whose first love is plein air watercolor. After completing numerous works while vacationing in North America and Europe, he has moved to oils, which are especially congenial for depicting the rocky Arizona landscape. Above is another oil painting done in Arizona, Red Mountain, near Water User's Cliffs. At left is a 14"x19" watercolor entitled View from Jingmei Metro Station. Below is an 8"x10" oil entitled Dark Lake, Haliburton, from the August, 2012 event "A Brush with the Highlands". This is Canada's largest plein air paint out, centred around a tiny town of Wilberforce , about two hours northeast of Toronto. "Tracy, the organizer, hosted a sit-down meal for all entrants (about 45) and their families - complete with door prizes - thank you Curry's and Guerrilla Box. The mornings here are luminous and you become a feast for mosquitoes!"
