PLEIN AIR ON PAPER

PLEIN AIR IN OIL

WORKING EN PLEIN AIR

"My subjects often balance architecture and nature, in particular exploring the poignant ways these two environments interact. I seek out landscapes that evoke the same issues that interested Corot. I look for structure in the landscape, and compelling chiaroscuro. In watercolor I'm interested in balancing translucency with contrast, juxtaposing transparent washes with saturated color and shadows. In oil I typically work on a traditional brown ground, modeling lights and darks from this middle value range while relying on the ground to read through when the architecture allows."

—David Mayernik, 2014

Plein air has been an essential part of artistic formation since at least the eighteenth century.
