Every month (or so) we will be featuring an artist from the pastel community in an effort to help show their work to a larger audience. If you would like to submit your work, send 3 of your best and recent works along with a short bio and a link to your website to: email@example.com
This month's featured artist is Tobi Clement.
I am a plein air artist because I revere the truth and beauty of nature. For me, plein air painting is essential because it allows me to connect to the energetic essence of nature, as well as absorbing the colors, sounds and imagery of the landscape I am painting. I hope to capture this in the field-study and later use this refference in my studio as I further distill the information, minimizing the landscape form to bring attention to the dynamic voice of color, allowing it to express the mystery of the creative energy.
