This is a studio painting with reference and notes from a trip to Ireland Dec 2014. The days were short and nightfall closed in early. I managed some afternoon trips to the cliffs of horn head looking out over the Sheephaven Bay, Donegal and this painting is inspired by small plein air studies done on location.Claire J KendrickSeascape SeriesNovember 24, 20150 comments
Small Plein Air Paintings are often inspiration for larger works of art. They capture a liveliness and spontaneity and act as color notes and reference when working back in the studio.
Often these paintings are emotional notes — and tapping into that energy shows up in the brushwork. When feeling is conveyed via mark making I think its the visual artists closest link to performance art. We get to perform in the privacy of our own studio’s and hope the viewer sees and shares the passion in the finished painting. The collector gets to keep that energy and be inspired by it.
