Giovanni Casadei: Angling for the Abstract in Ocean City

Giovanni Casadei just completed his 8th annual painting pilgrimage to Ocean City, NJ. His work has slowly evolved over these years but this summer the changes have been more noticeable. Though Giovanni has worked almost exclusively from observation, trying his hand at abstraction seems to have given him a new freedom in his landscapes.

Giovanni Casadei talks about his alla prima oil painting technique which "gives him an opportunity to capture a moment of light" in a single sitting. You will see his words come to life as many of his superb plein air paintings of the Jersey Shore are shown.
