Carol McGill, "Painting in the Spirit"
Going outside to begin a plein air piece is still a time of excitement and enchantment for me. Seeing God’s beauty bloom daily invites me to come and sit with my greatest teacher – and learn to see: the color, the contrast, the light, the fleeting moment. Thin layers have become thick quick strokes of paint applied with a palette knife. I still tone the canvas, if you will, but I do it while creating a tonal under painting. This is a quick approach to block in the shapes and values and speed me along as I capture the moment. I am ever on my journey of learning what the paint can do, and what I, the artist can do.
