Pittsford artist who paints 'en plein air' waterscapes and landscapes gives demo at GO ART!
There will be a demo at GO ART! from 7 to 9 p.m. on Tuesday, April 10, featuring the painter Barbara Jablonski, a resident of Pittsford.
It is sponsored by the Batavia Society of Artists.
"Composition and Painting the Landscape" is the focus of this demo. Jablonski loves drawing and painting waterscapes, especially plein air compositions. However, composition, designing and painting the waterscape using a photograph parallels many of the techniques that are used when painting nature en plein air (in open air).
In this presentation, she will share many of the compositional techniques to make WATERSCAPE PAINTINGS (where created in a studio from a photograph or plein air on site) that are believable, reflective of surroundings and subjects well as colorful.
Jablonski paints en plein air, that is, on site, winter, spring, summer and fall. Anywhere she travels she will paint -- NYS, the seashore, boats, the mountains, our national parks and Europe. She captures color and light while painting contemporary life in her landscapes. She loves architecture, nautical scenes, and winter scenes throughout this beautiful land.
"I pack my car or trailer and take to the road to capture the beauty of the land. 'Plein air painting' is a personal development experience,” Jablonski says. "I will always be a ‘student of the art.' ”
The demo is free to BSA members; nonmembers pay $5.
GO ART! is located in the historic Seymour Place building in Downtown Batavia, 201 E. Main St.
