Plein Air Painting – Video No.308

This 38 min documentary tells the story of plein air painting. It shows how it was used in the 19th century to bring the beauty of nature closer to people who were unable to travel. Some of the art may even be called conservationist as it preserved views to posterity which may have been lost forever since.

The beautiful scenery displayed in films, photos and paintings as well as the amazing number of artists painting en plein air make this film well worth watching. It may inspire you to try painting outdoors yourself.

You can always jump forward if you haven´t got the time to watch all of the video. You can also speed up the playback speed.

Hope you like my choice of the day.

Artists on German TV – Linda Schroeter

Linda

click image to view video – English version starts at minute 2:30

My new production introducing the Australian painter Linda Schroeter will be shown on German tv in English with German subtitles.

Linda Schroeter was born in Australia and always loved art admiring the works of classical painters. She began selling works in her teens and throughout her art college years. Linda became discouraged at how little of the old masters painting techniques she could learn from her art school.

Eventually she landed a job in an advertising agency in Adelaide, South Australia. Working in the corporate world as a graphic designer Linda later ran her own design business developing wine labels and point of sales material for wineries in San Francisco.

In 2008 she opened her own art studio and continued to work on her art education seeking out other artists in San Francisco and in France. Eventually Linda moved to California. She won numerous awards, amongst them the prestigious ARC semi finalist selection for one of her paintings.
