Rita Baldwin uses oil on either a canvas or panel. Some of her paintings are done with a brush, others with a palette knife. She is a nature lover and especially enjoys landscapes of Chatham County. A converted horse barn has become her studio and gallery. Each of her landscape paintings takes a direction of its own. One day it is influenced mainly by the overriding mood of the scene, another calls for bold palette knife strokes, and still another for a dreamlike softness that captures nature’s transcience. She is especially drawn to vanishing points in rural areas, remote coastal and river locations. Many of her paintings are done en plein air.
