| Sybil enjoys Plein Air painting. Color and shape are the two elements of art that are basic to her compositions.
From featured artist in overland gallery: Sybil Brauneis Klug is a Plein Air painter. Plein Air paintings, such as, SOARING, are done on site capturing the feeling of the day in a composition of the overall landscape or perhaps a single object. First, Sybil studies the scene before her, and does a quick sketch in her sketchbook to determine the value relationships and movement in the painting. Working directly on the canvas, she builds the composition starting with blocking in the values using a primary color. Plein Air paintings are created quickly because of the changing shadows.
