Shibu Natesan - Plein Air Views of Indian & London
“No matter where I was in the world, I would step outside with my paints and materials and paint as if I were touched by a force that gave me an inner realization of the reason for living. There was no one else around. Just the cold wind or warm breeze, the empty landscape and me.
Suddenly it was an awakening of all that lies within me and the confluence of the outside and inside being one. Inspired by the French painters of Barbizon, I am a plein air painter and the visions of landscapepainting help me talk to my present, and also shows me how to really listen to the land I’m looking at and absorbing in all its beauty and wholesome details, anywhere in the world. ”
