The Alhambra of Granada

"I painted this on location at sunset of the Alhambra in Granada Spain. The Alhambra is a fascinating fortress with an amazing history.  During the evening locals and tourists alike gather on the hillside across from the Alhambra at sunset to watch the sun as it hits the fortress and Sierra Nevada mountain range."

Trijsten Leach grew up in California's Santa Cruz mountains and gained an early appreciation of the landscape. That love and appreciation of the natural world brought him to study art in Hawaii at Brigham Young University Hawaii. 

After graduating Leach worked in a couple of non-creative fields for seven years before being drawn back to art. In 2017 Trijsten committed himself to creating art full time through landscape painting. 

Since then Trijsten has participated in many shows and competitions, as well as winning awards, including 1st place at the Driggs Idaho Plein Air Competition. Leach sells his work in a number of Utah galleries. He lives with his wife and two children in Utah along the Wasatch mountain range.
