"The advantage of painting outside is simply that you are there, 'living' the subject." --David Curtis For celebrated British painter David Curtis, painting on location is the most rewarding and enjoyable way of working. Here, he leads you on a passionate plein air adventure, showing you how to seize the moment, focus on the essential elements of a subject, and capture the mood with speed and economy. As atmospheric as the subject itself, Painting On Location is replete with anecdotes and gorgeous artwork. It's like sitting next to David as he works the canvas, discussing key lessons on: Working in partnership with oils and watercolors, taking advantage of each medium's special characteristics to make the most of your fresh air sessions. What to pack: having just the right equipment with you to work efficiently and effectively. Coping with the challenges of fleeting light and inclement weather. Finding a worthy subject and a personal viewpoint. Techniques for translating your subject in a quick and lively way. Maintaining a sense of place back in the studio as you finish your plein air pieces or use them as inspiration for new works. Painting on location creates another dimension to your work, allowing you to capture not only the look of your subject, but the very feel of it. David leads you to the confidence and inspiration you need to head out, brush in hand, to experience the rush and rewards of plein air painting.
