Still-Life, Figurative, & Landscape Painting


Patricia Rohrbacher – “All of my work, whatever the subject, indulges my fascination between light and dark.  I love the mystery and the intrigue of shadow and the drama of form. I lightly sketch a size and placement drawing on my canvas to work out compositional issues.  I then paint directly (“alla prima”) I try to use rich color, translucent shadows and the brilliant building of lights to convey my thoughts. My material is gathered either from the live model painted in a north light studio or from plein aire sketches done from my trips to Italy or France during the year.”
