Beth Bathe’s painting style is unique, looking somewhat like a watercolor, or is it an oil painting? Beth uses Cobra Water Mixable Oil Colors in thin washes with a limited palette, using unconventional tools such as squeegees and Q-tips along with her brushes. Her paintings evoke a nostalgia of an old sepia toned photograph. She is highly influenced by Andrew Wyeth, and her subject matter is often that of the “vanishing landscape,” buildings, barns and old towns of a time gone by.
Beth Bathe, a nationally known plein air painter, is a featured artist in the February/March 2018 issue of Plein Air Magazine. In 2017, she was a juried artist in the Cape Ann Plein Air Festival as well as ten other festivals. Her facebook page is Beth Bathe’s Paintings, http://bethbathe.com/collections/93720, and her website is www.bethbathe.com.
