Irene Osborne says “There is a magic about Plein Air Painting, it essentially gives me a greater depth of understanding of the landscape. Immersing myself in nature, responding to my surroundings, hearing the breeze or birdsongs is therapeutic: good for my soul and enhances my artworks.
Fortunately, I’ve been on numerous art safari adventures across Australia, from our coastlines to central deserts and remote Kimberley’s, enjoying the challenges of quickly trying to capture the colours, light and shapes unique to each location.
I also love interacting and painting with other likeminded members of the Mandurah Plein Air Artists. These experiences inform the rest of my arts practice including mural painting and larger studio works /commissions.”
