This week in the PleinAir Podcast, Eric Rhoads interviews landscape painter Linda Glover Gooch, who takes us into her experiences of painting and life, including a topic that’s never been discussed on this podcast before. Other themes include the art of practicing your craft, painting shadows in the landscape, the “power of the thumbnail,” creating spectacular compositions, the importance of American Women Artists, and more.
Listen as Linda Glover Gooch shares the following:
• Her advice for beginning painters in regards to choosing an instructor and a style when learning how to paint and find their own voice
• Why she tells all of her students to go outside to paint, even if they prefer to paint from photo references
• What it was like to be raising her children while also painting, working, and living as an artist
• What advice she gives to brand new plein air painters, including how to “zoom in” on an area of the landscape – even at a place like the Grand Canyon
• Why you should “stay away from white” when painting clouds
“Take a class and go practice what you learned … When you get to a certain point in your painting abilities, I believe you can paint whatever you want to paint and do it well because you apply certain principles.” ~ Linda Glover Gooch
Bonus: This week’s PleinAir Podcast includes a Marketing Minute!
Eric Rhoads, author of Make More Money Selling Your Art, explains:
• If you should pay for a sponsored post on social media and, before you spend a dime, what to consider
• Advice for writing an informative and engaging artist bio
