Landscape Painting | A Gallery With Four Pastel Artists

The February 2011 issue of The Pastel Journal goes
on sale at newsstands next Monday, but you can get a sneak peek on our
website today. The cover story is “The American Landscape” and features the work of plein air enthusiast Kim Lordier, who offers a step-by-step demosntration. The issue also includes a special feature compiling some of the thoughts and insights of four landscape artists—Amy Sanders, Marsha Hamby
Savage, Teri Gortmaker and Willo Balfrey—who paint in four distinct
regions of the country. Sanders, of Truro, Mass., finds her
inspiration in the eastern shoreline. She’s a studio painter who
works from photos she takes of those all too fleeting scenes that
attract her attention—light, clouds and changing tides. The act of
painting, she finds, brings new power to the encounter: “Spending the
time to paint a particular scene deepens the emotional intensity of the
experience, and sets it as a lasting part of me,” she says. “When I
look at a photo … I have a memory of being there. When I look at the
painting … I am there.”

Read the full story in the new issue (on sale in our online shop) and see additional examples of their landscape work right now in this online gallery.
