Here are a few more paintings from my two weeks in Plyos, Russia. The weather has been really uncooperative, with rain and/or wind pretty much everyday.

Green Noise is the name of the cultural exchange event here in Plyos. This year is eight ‘Italian’ plein air painters working together with eight Russian artists. The exhibition of our work opened yesterday and will be on display until mid-October.

We had a lot of fun in the evenings, drinking vodka with the Russian artists and discussing painting and painters. There are a lot of great artists working today in Russia and I’ll post some links to their work in the future.

In the meantime, here is a short video of us painting in the common room one evening:

  1. Marc,
    The birch groove is really stunning! amazing variety of subtle greens! My only wish- (I really don’t know whether i can request you this) can you please put some higher resolution pics of the works? it would be a great aid in learning for ppl like me!

    Regards.

  2. I’m afraid I didn’t notice what she was selling. There were some beaded bracelets hanging off of a wire, but I didn’t see what was on the table.

    I gave her some money for posing and she brought me a bag of apples later while I was painting.
