Updated: Jan 11, 2022
Please join us on Tuesday, January 11 at 6:00 pm for a demonstration and presentation by local artist Nikki Basch Davis. This meeting will be held via Zoom.
Following is a description of the presentation by the artist:
Larger paintings are always a challenge for me. They require careful planning. The painting originates in my head rather than in my heart. As a Plein air painter, often, I came home with small paintings, painted quickly and intuitively. I liked those paintings and found that they expressed best the mood, time of day, temperature, etc. I had bypassed the thought process. The painting became an emotional response. A great example of this phenomenon is the British painter Constable. His small sketches, painted outdoors as preparations for his large paintings, are full of life and mystery. The
large ones are, to my eye, stifled and lifeless; in this presentation, I will share my method of bringing images, from our small paintings, sketches, or photographs, to a larger scale while maintaining the elements that made the small pictures interesting.
An email containing a Zoom link will be sent to members shortly before the meeting. Not a member? It's always a perfect time to join!
