PLEIN AIR Painting
En Situ In Lincoln 2013
The production of a Landscape painting back in a studio environment has its roots traced back to an organic apprehension of the natural land. This encompasses a journeying to and an exploration of coastal and inland natural land.
The land as an encompassing entity is then translated from a phenomenological material, into something visually tangible, a visual form through the process of paint. The paintings are created using acrylic on a board, and each have dimensions of ten centimetres in length and seven centimetres in height.

The media allows for a large amount of miniatures to be gathered, with a quick drying time, there is a need to be more efficient, eliminating the extraneous variables and promoting aspects of the composition, which highlight the inherent beauty of the land.
The scale allows one to work quickly, though try and capture an extraordinary amount of narrative. It becomes a close engagement and unity with what is being experienced firsthand.
