Cathy McClelland: Truly Enchanting Acrylic Landscapes

Three Ways to Draw Plein Air (and a Plein Air Drawing Challenge!)

Plus, in this week’s New Artist Showcase. . .

I’m thrilled to introduce two of our newest Foliotwist artists—Pauline Adair and Richard Mammola.

Pauline is an incredible watercolor artist, focusing primarily on painting the nude female figure in detail. On her website, BodyWorks, she says, “Each and every person has their own individual beauty, outside and inside. . . they are in themselves great masterpieces of creation! Painting people is how I celebrate humankind and each person’s uniqueness. . . as a tribute to our Creator.”

Richard’s eye for desolate landscapes and expertise with brush and oil paints helps him capture windswept coastlines, picturesque lighthouses, and other gorgeous scenery. He also mentions that he accepts commissions (if you have something in mind) so don’t hesitate to contact with your requests.

Got a few minutes to spare this week? Definitely check out both of these artists’ websites, and stay tuned for our next Artist Showcase in a few weeks!
