Luminosity of life from the easel of a Grey Nomadic Artist

BY Kathryn Coller | 25-May-2021
Luminosity of life from the easel of a Grey Nomadic Artist

En plein air painting is the act of painting outdoors. What better way to capture the everchanging mood and atmospheric conditions than to paint what is seen directly onto canvas? It is living in the present moment. It can involve idyllic conditions where life literally stands still as the artist immerses in the scene. However weather and global pandemics can have other agendas. An award-winning Brisbane artist, Barbara Vivash takes us on her journey through landscapes and life events in a mesmerizing exhibition to be showcased at Redcliffe, Queensland during June and July 2021.
