Native Colorado artist Lanny Grant developed an early love and respect for the mountains surrounding his father’s ranch near the small Western Slope town of Silt. Lanny spent his early life exploring the wonders of the high country; fishing trips that became sketching trips are fond memories of early artistic efforts.
Always applying the fundamental principles, Grant has evolved his own techniques of translating impressions gathered from Nature. A compelling love for the changing moods of the mountains has drawn him into the high country of Colorado, Wyoming, Montana and Canada to paint.
Often working in remote areas, Lanny makes numerous sketches and oil color studies for use as reference in doing larger studio paintings. Lanny feels that the spontaneity of composition and accuracy of color that result from painting on location are invaluable.
