Eric Rhoads interviews impressionist artist Christine Lashley in this week’s PleinAir Podcast. Lashley shares her advice for new plein air painters, the subjective concept of beauty in art and style, constructive criticism, using photo references, and much more.
Listen as Christine Lashley shares the following:
• How beauty is interpreted, and the aspects of why different artists choose specific scenes to paint
• What it was like when she took her children along for “take your daughter to work day,” and how one of her daughters had painted a dramatic view while sitting inside a geologic formation called a pothole, and the other had chosen a waterfall, creating frame-worthy watercolors
• On giving constructive criticism to students while painting together en plein air, and how to give “highly tailored advice,” depending on the student
“I am very attracted to what is beautiful…luminosity…brushstrokes…a sense of place…things drenched in sunlight. I just can’t get enough of that.” ~Christine Lashley (christinelashley.com)
Bonus: This week’s PleinAir Podcast includes a Marketing Minute!
• Advice for pricing your painting, especially if you’re new to selling your art
• When and if it’s smart to take on an exciting painting project that might not pay that much
