AN ARTIST'S MARK BLOG by Kathleen Kalinowski, a contemporary impressionist painter of landscapes in Oil and Pastel gives an insight to her inspiration, process and goals as a working professional Fine Artist.
This is the studio painting that I finished from my plein air study and from the small pastel painting in the last blog post. I like the feeling of warmth in this scene despite the fact that it is a winter's day.
In Michigan, with December you get snow. Today was sunny after many days of rain and snowfall so I made an effort to do a plein air painting that I will post soon. During the past weeks of undesirable weather, I have been studio painting, working on some winter scenes that I photographed last winter, one of which I made into a Christmas card which is the first image below.
The Christmas Tree, pastel, 6x6
This is my family last year bringing our Christmas tree home...I love that tradition.
