FINE ART

WORKING EN PLEIN AIR

David Mayernik fine art

"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
