BROKEN SUNLIGHT, BIG SUR

This was one of those afternoons when broken sunlight was perpetually wandering around on the ocean's surface. Lucky me, I got to stand there and watch for a couple of hours!

Doug Martin

Colorado, USA

In 2003, at the age of fifty one, Doug Martin picked up a paintbrush for the first time. Since then Martin has studied with Dan Beck, Mark Daily, Quang Ho, Don Demers, Ralph Oberg, Matt Smith and numerous other painters. Given his self-training and his study with these respected representational painters, it's not surprising that Martin shares their interest in traditional realism exhibited by Martin's working out in the field, his creation of picturesque compositions, and his concern with bringing emotion to his paintings. "I can't believe it took me this long to try my hand at painting, but now I'm completely hooked!" His lifelong affinity for the outdoors and nature is answered well by his new found love of oil painting.

INDIAN RIVER

I painted the Indian River in Florida while visiting with painters of the American Impressionists Society. Merritt Island was in the distance. My focus was, What these people were doing? Fishing for crabs?

K.A. McMahon

Colorado, USA

I never leave home without my painting materials as I travel extensively around the world. Outdoor or plein-air paintings are my way of writing a story with color. Colors that I see in nature are put on canvas, and I am not afraid to experiment and push that to the limit. I use different color strokes next to each other, and that gives a sparkle to many of my paintings.

THE LAST TRAM

This scene depicts the last true Tramway operation in South America. It began operating with electricity in 1891, replacing horse-drawn trams and expanding its route. Nowadays, it can be seen only in Santa Teresa, a district of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil...it is a wonderful journey back in time, offering superb views of the city.

Sandra Nunes

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Nunes is a Brazilian plein-air painter who is in love with her native city, Rio de Janeiro - her main source of inspiration. Strolling through its urban, suburban and bucolic sites, she interprets and recreates the relationship between shapes and colors, recording the routines of its people. Although she generally sets up her easel on the city streets to paint from the natural environment, her canvases are not exact representations; they reflect a deep insight into the subject matter, the beauty she sees in nature, and her passion for color. Her work has won many awards in important juried exhibitions, been reproduced in prominent magazines, appeared on book covers and is included in private and corporate collections in Brazil and abroad.

Barbara Perrotti

Florida, USA

Perrotti's college training was at the Paier school of Art in Connecticut. Numerous prominent collections include the National Infantry Museum, Georgia and Disney World, Florida. Currently listed in Who's Who in American Art, Barbara's professional life is spent taking part in various plein-air invitationals and competitions. "My work, I feel, has been influenced by studies with Robert Brackman, Lois Griffel and Burt Silverman. My passion is to convey a sense of romantic impressionism, using as my vehicle, the land and its people. My paintings begin with abstraction and the degree of finish varies according to feelings from within."

AT THE EDGE OF THE FALLS

John Stuart Pryce

Ontario, CA

"The quest for eloquence in my painting is ongoing" says Pryce. He further says, "Strong design elements, an appropriately chosen colour palette, spontaneous brushwork and underlying luminosity are key elements that allow me to share with others what I see and feel." His goal is to share with others the beauty of that his eyes see, his heart feels and soul yearns to understand. John's love for art began at a very early age, as he discovered the great satisfaction derived from his ability to draw and paint. During a successful career as an architectural illustrator, his work was used in projects around the world. His seemingly loose yet eloquent technique is the result of years of experience in the disciplines of drawing, colour and composition. "The purest and most rewarding form of painting, in my opinion, is en plein air as it challenges all of the skills and discipline of the artist."

Charles P. Schaefer

Florida, USA

"Painting outdoors has always been a part of my lifelong ambition. Finding scenes in nature has let my vision open to new vistas everywhere I look; the sky and the marshlands around me reveal new colors that one does not see in the studio. I make quick, vibrant strokes of many colors that are integrated in my paintings. I now stretch to see how far one can push the palette of color and yet make the scene pleasing to view. Plein-air is the only way I can achieve the needed vibrancy and spontaneity in my work."
