Reality in Nature
Final Gentle January 15 x 21″ Watercolor
John is making ready for a significant solo exhibition on the Albrecht-Kemper Museum of Artwork titled, “Transcendence: Reality in Nature.” In the midst of writing concerning the work for the exhibition catalog, he walks the reader via the 4 seasons and the inspiration and challenges they create to the panorama painter.
This week, we needed to share a few of his ideas and work about Winter with you.
“In comparison with the flurry of frenetic portray within the fall, winter portray is rather more evenly paced to the climate. If we get any days of higher thirty-degree climate, I usually head outdoors to work. That is the time to make the most of the clear mild and the naked structure of the panorama which is often obscured. What could seem to the informal observer as a stark and barren scene, usually holds visible treasures for the artist prepared to increase themselves into it. That is what I’ve come to get pleasure from most concerning the Midwestern panorama. It doesn’t entertain. It holds its charms intently—not fairly hid—and requires curiosity, thought and energy to carry them out. It’s a actual pleasure to find one thing lovely to color on a winter’s day.”
“Portray outdoor is about making hundreds of little comparisons, judgments and alterations as we paint. It’s as a lot an mental train as it’s bodily. The largest problem all the time is that this: the brightest white paint in the marketplace is greater than a thousand occasions darker than daylight! How we navigate that huge gulf and convert what we see right into a plausible rendition of pure mild is what takes a lot apply and ability. It’s the place the magic and energy of portray is born.”
