Truth of the matter in Mother nature
Previous Gentle January 15 x 21″ Watercolor
John is preparing for a key solo exhibition at the Albrecht-Kemper Museum of Art titled, “Transcendence: Truth in Mother nature.” In the study course of crafting about the paintings for the exhibition catalog, he walks the reader through the 4 seasons and the inspiration and challenges they deliver to the landscape painter.
This week, we desired to share some of his views and paintings about Wintertime with you.
“As opposed to the flurry of frenetic portray in the drop, winter portray is a great deal a lot more evenly paced to the weather conditions. If we get any days of upper 30-degree weather, I often head outside to function. This is the time to choose advantage of the apparent light and the bare architecture of the landscape which is usually obscured. What may well look to the informal observer as a stark and barren scene, normally retains visible treasures for the artist eager to prolong them selves into it. This is what I have appear to appreciate most about the Midwestern landscape. It does not entertain. It retains its charms closely—not quite concealed—and demands curiosity, thought and hard work to convey them out. It is a true enjoyment to explore some thing attractive to paint on a winter’s day.”
“Portray outdoors is about earning hundreds of very little comparisons, judgments and alterations as we paint. It is as a lot an mental workout as it is bodily. The largest challenge often is this: the brightest white paint on the marketplace is much more than a thousand moments darker than sunlight! How we navigate that extensive gulf and transform what we see into a plausible rendition of all-natural gentle is what usually takes so significantly follow and talent. It is wherever the magic and energy of painting is born.”
