LexArt Painters Guild presents:
Peter Bain, Painting the Landscape in thick & rich Oils
Sunday, January 20, 2019 2 – 4pm
One of the reasons Peter loves oil painting is because the paint itself is a pleasure to work with...oil paint is thick and buttery, the colors deep and rich, and the scent of linseed oil hovers above my palette while he works. It is wonderful thing to mix a vibrant, glistening color note and smear it across a canvas. The finished, varnished painting glows within its frame, the paint looks as though it is still wet.
With each painting he tries to capture a simple vision of beauty; the sunlight falling on the snow, clouds passing above a marsh, or an idle tractor in a field. Occasionally, he paints a still life by grabbing some pears or lemons and trying to capture a warm light reflecting across them.
Peter’s paintings are in many collections across the country.
Join us for this wonderful opportunity to watch, learn, question and speak with the artists in a comfortable setting.
Located in the Plummer Studio, admission and parking are free and the public is welcome.
