Celia Reisman

Celia Reisman paints suburban landscapes – specifically the neighborhood she has been living in for over 30 years.

In this interview discusses her process of creating these paintings and how she adapted her work methods to fit her personality.

Observational drawings are integral to her work method. While she does paint plein air, it is her field sketches that feed her large scale studio paintings.

She talks about memory, instinct and how she constructs her large scale works -not being satisfied with traditional proportions for example. Early on, Celia played with an extremely limited palette, which is probably why she has such a sensitive eye for color.

This episode is a lot about Celia’s process of making a painting: the shifting balance between planning and having control while letting the painting evolve throughout the process.
