|"Blackwater Dawn" by Jill Basham|
Jill is drawn to the landscape and prefers to paint "en plein air" (outdoors, not from photographs). "The immediacy of painting the surroundings in which you are immersed is captivating to me. There is nothing better then feeling the scene and putting the energy and emotion down on canvas with color and brushstrokes." The Eastern Shore of Maryland is inspiring to the artist. Jill is also interested in urban scenes as well as any location in the world that provides inspiration. Jill comes from a family with a multi-generational history of artists.For more of Jill's paintings, please visit HERE.
