Alix Hallman Travis

Rhinebeck, NY

My painting mediums and tools change with the passage of the seasons. Spring and summer’s warm weather draws me outside to paint alla prima, en plein air with watercolor.  In the fall when the weather cools I move into my studio to paint in oils, using my watercolor paintings from past summers to influence and inspire the subject matter of my oil paintings. I am not interested in recreating a faithful record and I do not take photographs.  I depend on the watercolor paintings and my memory to create the fanciful compositions that reflect the mood and aura of a particular area.

The colors on my palate are saturated and bold.  Oils are applied with the palette knife.

While I wait for spring I create collages of ripped and torn passages from old watercolors.  Then it is warm and I begin again in watercolor.

I studied at the Cleveland Institute of Art, Cleveland, OH followed by The Art Students League New York.

I have exhibited locally, and nationally and have received several awards and signature status in several societies. Collectors reside all over the North Eastern United States.
