Classical Humanism in the Old Master Tradition

Working en plein air in watermedia on paper is something David Mayernik has been doing since his studies in Rome under Paris Prize winner Frank Montana

 

"I began painitng en plein air in watercolor while a student in Rome in 1981 under the Beaux-Arts trained architect Frank Montana. Frank stressed both careful observation and freshness of approach, which I've continued to practice and develop over more than 30 years of working in the field."

—David Mayernik.

WORKING EN PLEIN AIR ON PAPER

PHILOSOPHY

 

It is a combination of brushwork and attention to light effects that imparts energy and life to a plein air watercolor. At the same time, being attracted to powerful natural and manmade forms, often in juxtaposition, a certain solidity is required to convey the scene's sense of mass and weight. Balancing these sometimes opposing forces is what artistic judgment is all about.
