Anne Bonnyman Featured Plein Air Artist
Asheville Urban Landscape Painters
June 2nd, 2018
Tuesday, June 5, 9:30 am - 12:30 pm. Demonstration of Plein Air Painting and Paint Out with Anne Bonnyman at Engadine Inn and Cabins, 2630 Smokey Park Highway.
Our demo artist, Anne Bonnyman, moved to Asheville seven years ago to pursue painting and life in the mountains. After serving for many years as an Episcopal priest, she now works full time in her North Asheville studio. As a plein air painter she is captivated by the ever-changing landscape, the power of light and color, and the challenge of translating multi-dimensions onto a 2-D surface. “Deciding what to paint is the first challenge when I look at the richness of the landscape. The painting takes off only when I can identify and capture the features in the scene that most intrigue me. A plein air painting takes on a life of its own and the results always surprise me.”
