Overland Gallery August/September Exhibit

Sybil Brauneis Klug   |   Sandra Fink May

Sybil KlugSybil Brauneis Klug is a Plein Air painter. Plein Air paintings, such as, SOARING, are done on site capturing the feeling of the day in a composition of the overall landscape or perhaps a single object. First, Sybil studies the scene before her, and does a quick sketch in her sketchbook to determine the value relationships and movement in the painting. Workjng directly on the canvas, she builds the composition starting with blocking in the values using a primary color. Plein Air paintings are created quickly because of the changing shadows.  

In my studio Sybil might 
Interpret a Plein Air painting, WILD PINES, 
based on the Plein Air painting TWO PINES, 
Create from a still life arrangement, GIFTS OF NATURE,
Work from my memory and photos from my travels ALONG THE CAMINO.
