Artist Robin Scholl

Robin Scholl has been painting in her Los Altos studio and teaching at the Pacific Art League in Palo Alto for more than 30 years. She is known for impressionistic landscapes with a focus on light and color in the natural world. She works from photographs taken during her wide travels and favorite California scenes, using four media: oils, watercolor, watercolor with pastel, and watercolor with gouache. Her signature layered technique builds up the media, creating movement and depth uncommon in watercolors. She holds a B.A. in studio art and a teaching credential in arts instruction from UCSB. Her classes in watercolor, oil media, and landscape drawing are popular favorites at the Pacific Art League. She served on the Board of Directors for seven years, retiring from that role recently. She has been affiliated with galleries across the U.S., including Mona Berman Fine Arts (New Haven, CT), Corporate Art Directions (New York, NY), Greenleaf Gallery (Saratoga, CA), The Equinox (Chicago, IL), and Nathan’s Gallery (Carmel, CA).
