Channels: Warren Dreher
Warren Dreher has been exploring and painting scenic California waterways––from San Francisco Bay to the Sacramento Delta––for over 40 years. Usually painted on site, his intimate pastels and oils capture subtle atmospheres, dramatic sunsets, and the peaceful serenity of undisturbed channels that nature and man created to irrigate the Northern California landscape.
