“I painted this piece across the street from the Caffe Greco on Canyon Road in Santa Fe, New Mexico. It was a sunny day and I was attracted to the composition I could create. The shadows on the street draw your eye across the road and up to the couple under the umbrella. The waiter is walking towards them and they are painted in a manner that makes them the focal point.
As with all the plein air paintings I do of figures on the move, I need to create a mental snapshot in my mind and stick with that visual as I finish the painting. I also do a small value study that I can look at throughout the painting process.”
This work is part of the 16th Annual Sedona Plein Air Festival – a festival unlike anything that we have ever done before! A first-of-its-kind, an all-woman festival, presented completely online October 24 – 31, 2020.
Each artist will be sending in work from their own diverse locations for presentation in the Arts Center’s online Gallery. At the conclusion of the festival week, well known plein air artist Lyn Boyer of Colorado will conduct an online awards ceremony.
Artists will submit new work as it is completed, accompanied by short narratives describing their selection of place and/or their creative process. Works from the festival will be available for purchase from Oct 25 – Nov 30, 2020.
Online presentations allow for rich content that could not otherwise be experienced. Art lovers will be able to immerse themselves in presentations from their favorite artists throughout the festival. From live demonstrations, to short videos created by our festival artists all across the country, to an online gallery of new works updated daily.
