Plein-air artist Eric Jacobsen thrives on the direct link between experiencing a scene and applying paint
There’s a reason Eric Jacobsen has taken home quite a few Artists’ Choice awards, along with other top honors, from plein-air painting events and exhibitions over the years. Fellow painters appreciate and respect what they see in his work. “I know I’m not blowing other artists away with my technique,” Jacobsen muses with characteristic humility. Yet here’s what painters tell him about why they’re drawn to his art: They see something in it that is fresh, spontaneous, uninhibited, free. They see loose, broad strokes that convey an immediate sense of mood, the elements, season, and time of day, which Jacobsen believes he can capture only by setting up an easel and painting on the spot. Which works out quite well, since outdoors is exactly where he most wants to spend his time.
