Plein Air Painting Canada 2024

Christine Code

Moody, atmospheric, a sense of time and place -painting the Land of the Living Skies.

“I’m a Canadian artist living in rural Saskatchewan. Our province is known as the Land of the Living Skies – a common theme in my paintings. Working in oils, I enjoy the techniques of impressionism and tonalism. I aim to convey a particular mood or atmosphere in each piece through interesting brushwork and palette knife passages.

I regularly paint en plein air, taking my easel outdoors into the rolling hills and sprawling farmland. The knowledge gained through direct observation outdoors informs my larger paintings in the studio.

I am also an avid gardener and bird lover, often finding inspiration in my own back yard.”

Christine’s work has been juried into several national and international exhibitions. She has won awards through the Federation of Canadian Artists, National Oil and Acrylic Painters’ Society, Oil Painters of America, Modern Impressionist Salon and the PleinAir Salon. Her work has been featured in PleinAir Magazine, Fine Art Connoisseur Magazine, Modern Impressionist Magazine, and the cover of Art Avenue Magazine.

Christine has work held in private collections in Canada, the United States, Australia, Belgium, Germany, Norway, New Zealand, Italy, and the Untied Kingdom.
