'Plein Air Painting' conjures images of bright beaches, colorful skies and highly chromatic romps through the color spectrum. Charlie Hunter's work on the other hand, while still pure plein air, tends toward the monochromatic, relying on value, edges and composition to create a compelling image.
Let's talk about other ways of 'getting to yes' with a painting; stepping away from the expected painterly touchstones (Sorolla, Zorn, etc.) and embracing the unexpected -- photography, illustration and poster design, etc. What are some of the unusual influences in your work, and how do those influences show themselves?
Charlie might also segue into why his cats hate him. Highly entertaining!
