Harbor scene Plein Air painting

Surrounded by idyllic beauty, tranquil light and radiant colors, with a portable easel and paintbox well stocked with tubes of oil paint, long bristle brushes and amber tinted canvasses. Mark L. Gingerich, a plein air impressionist painter of the Midwest seeks to render the motif before him in strokes of oil paint carefully laid down one against the other in calculated yet seemingly spontaneous fashion endeavoring to record the play of light upon scene before him.

Whether painting in the Ohio countryside with a vintage clothed model, rendering a still life in the studio, or venturing out into the landscape of Nova Scotia, France or the American West, Mark has sought in his canvasses to translate his emotional response into visual poetry.
