We love to hear from the Plein Air Today community! The following is part of a series that spotlights an artist who loves painting outdoors. Today’s feature is on Lisa McDill.

“Light is my favorite subject! Light falling across planes. Low light, reflective light, moody light, happy sunny light.”

From Lisa’s Artist Statement: Creating artwork that is realistic but loose, expressive as well as meaningful is an ongoing endeavor. What I think about when painting is emphasizing an exciting play of light and shadow, an interesting composition, and enhancing a scene that evokes a deeper meaning or emotion in me. It is my intent that this depth and emotion I feel will also be communicated and resonate with the viewer.
