“My passion for painting is rooted in my garden.” Learn how to paint from Kathy Anderson at Realism Live, a virtual event you won’t want to miss!
Coming Soon: Kathy Anderson Teaches How to Paint a Garden
“For me, plein air painting means painting from life,” says Connecticut artist Kathy Anderson, who counts herself among the group known as the Putney Painters – artists who paint and learn from Richard Schmid in his studio/barn in Putney, Vermont. “I hate working from photographs.”
Still, come winter, Anderson stays in the studio for the most part. She sets up still lifes, or finishes plein air paintings she began in warmer months. This doesn’t bother her – on the contrary. “I love winter,” says Anderson. “I love the rest period. It lets me rest after the summer.”
In her upcoming painting demonstration for Realism Live, a virtual art conference October 22-24, 2020, Kathy will show us how she will take you through the steps she takes to create a painting from her garden, and then recreate a similar one in the studio.
“I was not able to attend the Plein Air Live convention as I was away, but I have a group of friends who signed up and couldn’t stop raving about it,” Kathy said. “The main thing they loved was you can go back and watch again the things you may have missed, which for me would be invaluable!”
Kathy’s demonstration will be on view during Realism Live on October 23 at 5:15 pm EST. Recently, she was on Eric Rhoads’ daily Facebook Live series (watch the interview here), and she has also been featured on the PleinAir Podcast (listen below).
When springtime hits and the flowers are everywhere, we wish they would last forever.
What if you could capture your favorite flowers, flowering trees, or garden, with the emotion you feel when you see them?
What if those flowers you love so much could hang on your walls forever and remind you of spring on those cold gray gloomy winter days?
