Advice on Your First Plein Air Competition

Advice on Your First Plein Air Competition | Plein Air and Other Cool Art Stuff | Scoop.it

Cynthia Rosen seems like she went from zero to 60mph in her painting in virtually no time. This perception is false -- even though she took more than a decade off to raise a family, she still kept her hand in painting in various ways, always growing. But nevertheless, her entrance onto the plein air scene has been striking, both for her adventurous style and for her advanced skill level. So what happened in her first plein air competition recently?

What Painting With Two Colors Can Teach You

What Painting With Two Colors Can Teach You | Plein Air and Other Cool Art Stuff | Scoop.it

"I'm always experimenting with paint, and I take the very act of painting as an experiment in and of itself," says the Montana painter. "With painting every day, some you win and some you lose. Failing is just part of the process, and in failing I learn a lot more than when I win as I turn it over and over in my mind, how I can avoid the same pitfalls in the next piece."

How Berber Children Changed Aaron Schuerr's Painting Approach

How Berber Children Changed Aaron Schuerr's Painting Approach | Plein Air and Other Cool Art Stuff | Scoop.it

 

Schuerr notes that photography didn't have the same effect, especially in cities such as Marrakesh, where people would shrink from a camera or express displeasure at a tourist taking a picture. "With an easel, everyone was my friend," says Schuerr.

 

"People would come out of the shops and bring me tea, they would watch my stuff if I needed to leave for a second. I guess there's something universally wonderful about someone saying that this place that you look at every day is worthy of art."

 

Schuerr even half-jokingly suggests that the United Nations should send painters into places where two cultures need to close the divide between them. "I found that, traveling in that part of the world, art is the most amazing form of diplomacy," says the artist. "It's an amazing shared language."
