Liane Whittum

plein-air Artist

Liane Whittum’s recent series of paintings are a reflection of her time spent traveling by car since moving to Hill New Hampshire.  Her work focuses on pastoral, industrial, and wild landscapes.  Liane also focuses heavily on still life work.  She transitions between still life, landscape and plein air work, done primarily in oil paint in a classical realism style.  She gathers information on site and paints plein-air when composing landscape paintings.  Liane will often finish her paintings in her studio, which after consideration may be complete as a loose work, or become a more involved work of higher refinement.  “Plein air painting informs all of the studio pieces I create.  Nothing teaches you more about form and light than painting from life.”
