Painting Series: OUT THE WINDOW

About this painting series

Painting Series: OUT THE WINDOW

This past week, we came across a short film of contemporary painter Josephine Halvorson detailing her practice and process. She completes works on location in a single day-long session, relying on an intimate observational exchange, choosing extremely personal subjects. One of those objects in the film is a window.

Because of the time spent indoors, we found ourselves looking out windows more than ever before. For this series, we are going to paint from inside a window, looking out, carefully observing the view so we can capture the idea of being indoors and what landscape we see from our personal point of view.

To quote a poem by Diane Seuss:

It's a paradise of vagaries.

No heartache.

Just and eraser smudge,


(from the poem I Look Up From My Book and Out at the World through Reading Glasses, included in the highly recommended collection Still Life with Two Dead Peacocks and a Girl, 2018)

Props: a window with a view.

Painting surface: any size, any kind.

Painting webinar medium: oil over cotton paper.
