Last Light - Kings Canyon Trail by Alexandria Winslow - Original Acrylic on Gallery Wrap Canvas 28x22 / Wilson Graham Photographer

Currently, Alexandria is exploring the many layers of the western/ southwestern landscape. Her paintings focus on the moment you feel the wow factor of the scenery, with an emphasis on using bright color to bring the onlooker into her experience. Alexandria’s paintings have been described by many of her collectors as having a feeling of great movement with a contemporary edge. She chooses to paint very purposefully and confidently in what she calls a high definition style.  Emphasizing the natural contrasts in the landscape she plays with the dramatic lights and darks you find in the southwest. Her medium of choice is acrylic and most often on gallery wrap canvas that does not need frames.  She continues the painting around the edges to give a feeling of dimension and depth.

Lingering Twilight by Alexandria Winslow - Original Acrylic on Gallery Wrap Canvas 22 x 28 / Wilson Graham Photographer

Alexandria hikes and camps throughout the southwest and recreates the magic moments by bringing the field experience back to her studio through photographs, sketches, and memories. She captures her personal feelings about the incredible nature she has witnessed and then brings it to her easel.  Most of her work is completed in the studio, which gives her the freedom and time that she needs to bring more detail and life to each painting.
