About Emily Faludy
Capturing the feel of a specific place are what my paintings aim to do. Painted entirely outdoors, these latest works aim to inspire in the viewer the enthusiasm that I have for landscape. Working outdoors is an activity which places the painter in a vulnerable situation which is subject to many variables, which creates an intensity which is also very exciting. The process often starts by exploring an area on foot, with a sketchbook to try out views for their worthiness as potential paintings. Once a view has been chosen, I make each canvas myself using high quality wood and fine linen, which is primed with a layer of rabbit skin glue. Thus armed with a painting surface, palette, a portable easel and a rucksack containing paints, brushes, water, food and other essentials, work is ready to begin. Some paintings are finished in one sitting; others are worked over a number of sessions to achieve the desired effect. I hope that all display my passion for my subject and enthusiasm for depicting the details which make each scene individual.
