Field at Dusk ” © Loriann Signori

Loriann lives and works in Silversprings, Maryland.
Medium: Pastel; oil
Subjects: Landscape.
Style: Impressionistic, Loriann states that she is a painter of luminosity. She has been influenced by Hans Hoffman, Rothko, Wolf Kahn and Richard McKinley, in particular their work with colour temperature.
Technique: Loriann  points out that each painting goes through a process that begins with an underpainting and progresses with thin layers of glaze. it is often necessary to scrape, rub or sand the surface in order to maintain the translucence sought. Small plein air paintings and colour notes precede the studio work.

Image View:  Thumbnails enlarge twice, and may be scrolled. Little information is provided on dimension. Field at Dusk is an exception at 6x6 ins, and I have featured it because it is near actual size and must represent the artist’s plein air passion.
