Fields of Color: Pastel Landscapes by Jane Lincoln

December 3, 1999 - January 29, 2000


The "local color" is the dramatic range of colors found among the fields of Cape Cod as captured by pastel artist Jane Lincoln. The exploration of color through nature's breath-taking palette is the principal inspiration for Jane's landscapes. Wetlands and marshes, bogs and meadows, pastures and dunes - all types of fields are portrayed by Lincoln's plein air artistry. (left: Jane Lincoln in her studio)
