Plain Air PainterPatricia Sablak-Korzec
“”It is my intent to celebrate nature in all its forms.”
Patricia relishes the challenge of plein air painting. She works to capture those momentary explosions of color and shadow that nature provides. She seeks to interpret the beauty of her surroundings from the solitary tree to the expansiveness of mountain ranges and canyons.
I use color expressively and paint with loose broad brushstrokes. “It is my intent to celebrate nature in all its forms.”
Patricia tries to never paint from photographs. “I find that if I do, I try to recreate every detail and leave no room for imagination or interpretation. A client once said to me that she would rather buy an artist’s painting of a street in Paris because it is the way she remembered it in her mind. A photograph shows all the utility lines and trash on the sidewalk.”
She may use a photograph to start a composition, but puts it away until she is finished. Once completed, she then pulls it out to see if she has captured the moment and most often, she has captured the memorable details!
