Plein Air Magazine article

Hi blogger friends,

I have had many requests to show the whole article. Here are pages 2, 3, and 4(see my last post for page one). Once again they are screen shots. If you want to read the article I think you either have to buy the printed form or get it online line. I received the printed magazine today.

Here is a snippet of the article.

“I often work from memory. I will sit and watch what happens in a landscape, record the information in my head and later in my sketchbook.  Sometimes I return to the location a day later to paint the scene,” Signori reveals. “More often I just work from the memory alone. I find that my work from memory is more evocative. The key for me is to remember the moment that made me stop there, and then I paint from that. I grew up in the woods so being part of the outdoors has always influenced my creative work.”

“It is important to begin my work with a clear intention,” Signori emphasizes. “I have to ask myself what I am trying to say with the painting I am about to create. If the message is not clear to me, how will the viewer be able to understand my work? Part of the way I convey the message is to have a clear focal point and a strong understanding of the color relationships I chose to use.

Till later,
