Plein air painting recall of those wonderful, long, hot summer days in the garden – I so look forward to those sunny days again and when the troubles of the world are more manageable and Covid is no longer a threat to us all.
These are the days when we take time to re-assess, re-evaluate, find new ways to do what we do. Luckily for me, I can continue to paint from my studio and share my work online – you can see my landscape and abstract paintings at www.donnamcgee.ie why not take a browse through – you might just find what you’re looking for.
Take good care everyone
Here is an extract from my artist statement on Plein Air Painting Recall
plein air painting recall
Weather permitting, I paint outdoors (en plein air). Oftentimes challenging to capture the changing light in a rapidly changing climate. (It has been known to happen that the wind steals the canvas and comes back for the easel – we won’t even mention the rain and the four seasons in one day!) I like to visit the annual plein air painting festival in Wexford Art in the Open and I attended the 7 day Dublin Plein Air Festival this year for the first time – a super experience. Inspiration is everywhere and travel gives rise to experience new panoramas, diverse rich cultures of taste, colour and smell. It creates a whole new perspective allowing the painting dictate the journey.
Sometimes I am just as happy to paint outdoors in my garden when the sun shines.
