Plein air painter and instructor Marcia Burtt’s acrylic piece

PleinAir magazine is bucking the cold to bring readers a breath of spring in its upcoming February-March issue. One top subject: florals.

Andras Bality’s approach, which is informed by the work of Vuillard and Bonnard, is examined in the upcoming issue.

Interviews with a number of artists who incorporate gardens, still lifes, woodland views, and other scenes with flowering plant material in their plein air paintings reinforce the idea that painting from nature is more than recording mountains and trees. Also in the issue, Andras Bality and his use of flat planes of color to express the landscape, step-by-step demonstrations from pastelist Tom Christopher and oil painter Larry Moore, and a look back at an important plein air influence, Alexandre Hogue (1898-1994).

Janet Fish’s painting “Birdcage and Daffodils” will appear as part of the issue’s floral theme.

M. Shawn Cornell shares his painting process in the February-March issue of PleinAir magazine.

The issue will also feature artwork and information from artists such as Cindy Baron, M. Shawn Cornell, Mary Garrish, and more. Go here for more information and to subscribe.
