About

Hi Everyone,
Welcome to my Patreon page. My name is Rita Alvarez and I'm a fine art artist. I create original oil paintings of everyday people interacting and enjoying themselves in nature. My passion is painting from life, in the great outdoors! 

I always enjoy studying Art and learning from master artist! Beginning in Fresno at Fresno City College, I earned an AA in Fine Art and received a strong intermediate-level grasp of the skills I would need as an artist. Following, I received my bachelors from the University of California at Davis, and was fortune enough to study with some of Americas top artist! 

At this point the main focus of my studies was portraits, the human figure and all my work was indoors, in a studio. The problem is I've always been an outside type girl. So finally, I realized I needed to combine the two.  People and nature belong together! Following, I did the only logical thing and I signed up as the Artist-in-Residence at the Cache Creek Nature Preserve and with the help of some local plein aire artist I began painting outdoors!  It took about 6 or 7 years before I felt comfortable enough with the landscape to allow myself to paint the human figure again! 

Upon my return to painting the figure, I sought out the guidance of Master Artist Michael John Angel from the Angel Art Academy in Florence Italy. At the Angel Art Academy I was able to acquire some of the finest figure painting techniques available today! All of my educational and real life experiences has lead me to be the artist I am today.

My goal is to inspire the world, to embrace their creative side and spend more time in nature! At YouTube channel "Rita Alvarez Paints", you will experience my love for the arts and the outdoors.

So this is how you can help.. Select a tier and become a Patreon donor today. Your donations big or small, will enable me to paint more and produce better quality videos!  

Please help me share my painting experiences, and spread the joy.

Thank you,

Rita Alvarez
