Dimiao nature inspires visual on-spot painting

TAGBILARAN CITY, April 8 (PIA)—Toting primed canvas, oil paint tubes in satchels, folding easels, carving tool kits, newly charged batteries and a choice of lenses, Bohol visual artists took Dam-agan Falls in Dimiao Bohol as inspirational subject for the Sunday Open Air painting session, April 2. 

The falls, or more appropriately a cascade lazily bursting out into an aquamarine pool is hidden in a pocket of forest in Barangay Catugasan, laso provides a space for swimming, before it continues its cascade to rock strewn spring bed before joining the sea vial barangay Balbalan.

The second of a series of outdoor painting sessions by a small group of visual artists in the oil and acrylic media, the plein air session is a recreation of the 19th century French impressionism which draws its inspiration from the open-air, explains oil painter Rhants Anunciado.
