“Summer’s Palette”
24 x 20 in.

Kathryn Riedinger, an award-winning artist based in Ketchum, Idaho, is primarily a plein air painter and studies many subjects and locales in her travels, but she is becoming well-known with her approach to Western expanses and rural scenes.

Riedinger has studied extensively at the Art Students League of Denver with noted artists Quang Ho, Kevin Wechbach, Doug Dawson, Kim English, and Mark Daily. In addition, she has attended the workshops of landscape painters Jay Moore, George Strickland, and Tim Deibler, and traveled to workshops in France and Italy.
In 2009, Riedinger’s family moved to Paris and traveled extensively throughout Europe, giving the artist new inspiration in the landscape and urban scenes. It was a year of personal artistic growth with visits to the major museums of Europe to study classic works of art.
Riedinger paints the mood and feeling of the scene through value, shape, color, design, and edge work. She paints plein air studies for many of the larger pieces completed in the studio.
“Painting for me is a constant quest to find the abstract in a scene. Anything can be broken down into beautiful shapes and color, whether I am looking at a rainy street scene, new snow, or a fallen log in a creek. The visual approach of capturing light and shadow is a major theme in my work.”
