Clyde Aspevig: A Living Landscape Legend

“My first concern when beginning a landscape outside is capturing the overall feeling of light as it affects the forms. I use broad brushstrokes to block in the overall color and values of the masses while simultaneously trying to create movement. As I progress, my intuition drives me to concentrate on the idea or purpose behind what I’m painting. The further elaboration of the concept comes later in the studio. Field studies supply you with information that you can then use on a more complete painting.” - Clyde Aspevig
