Sunset Cove plein air pastel
Sunset Cove plein air pastel
As a painting artist, I explore color and form by using encaustic, pastel or oil paint mediums. Custom pet portraits are in pastel or oil. The unique properties of each medium produces uniquely different visual imagery. I enjoy blending reflecting hues for realistic renderings. My website of gallery art offers my original paintings and their art reproductions produced by the Giclee process in the finest inks available.
Plein air painting with the pastel medium lends the ability to capture both soft and vivid hues of landscapes, exactly as they appear at any given moment. Labor Day 2016 perfectly describes the beach at Stone Harbor as it was that weekend. The colors in the scene were chosen by physically comparing the pigment of the pastel sticks to the color of the beach, water and sky, thus capturing the atmosphere that was simultaneously bright and overcast.
Encaustic painting, the fusing of layer upon layer of hot melted colored wax, can often result in various interpretations of the artist's work. A three dimensional opulence is created with a textured, sculpted or smooth finish. In my experience, encaustic painting is by far the most versatile art medium. It offers endless possibilities for creativity. Hydrangea is a beautiful example.
Southern New Jersey artist Anna Kuczynski belongs to the long respected school of self-taught artists that have often dominated American painting. While her works exhibit the influence of paintings she has observed over the years, her approach and style remain very much her own, free from the restrictions and boundaries imposed by rigid training.
American artists are known throughout the world for their independent approach. Anna expresses her artwork through encaustic, oil and pastel painting mediums, utilizing each for their unique properties and capabilities: encaustic for its versatility with mixed media, oil paint for highly detailed realism and soft pastel for plein air painting.
With so may ways to creativity, American artist Anna Kuczynski welcomes commissions and is available to discuss any project, large or small.
