Russel Howarth and plein air painting in ipainters TUBES ssue 13

In this issue: 

Excellent Article on plein air painting – a brilliant essay by Gregory Evans – Taking risks. A review of the legendary Russel Howarth (master painter from the North of England- photographed by Marianne Arnberg)  New contemporary paintings from the UK, Europe and the USA  Plus a new TUBES section where artists get to talk about their own words the new section is called “in their own words” This issue Mark David Lloyd gives a great overview of his practise.

This is how Google explain what plein air painting is..

“…en  plein air  is a French expression that means “in the open  air.” It is used by  artists to  describe the  art  of outdoor  painting, capturing landscapes and views in natural light. This kind of  art  has been a popular practice for centuries and requires specific skills and techniques.”

DOES IT NEED SPECIAL SKILLS?

Do you agree with that definition? Technically it is correct, well the first part is, I mean it is French for in the open air, but what about the rest of the statement. Is it really used by artists to describe their work? Or is it used more by Art professionals, galleries, social media platforms to place this sort of art into a convenient ‘art’ box? – personally I think the later rather than the former is correct. Does it need a special skill?

Not really, painting is painting isn’t it? Not matter where or what you paint with or even on, inside or outside, it’s more complex than the skill – it’s more complicated than just having some sort of natural talent or a gift for transcription of an object or scene that is in front of you.” – intro written by the Editor of painters TUBES magazine

Contemporary Artists featured in this issue: Amanda Oilphant, Russel Howarth, Brian Cote, Gregory Evans, Helen Skidmore, Mark David Lloyd, Richard Suckling, Stephen Stringer, Niki Heenan, Barry De More. Edited by artist and writer Denis Taylor.
