Biography


BIOGRAPHY
Silvina Day was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina and grew up in Southern California where she studied at the Los Angeles Academy of Figurative Art. Since moving to the Pacific North West, Silvina's primary artistic focus has been on depicting the landscape and waterscapes of her new home state. She often paints impressionistic studies on location, outdoors, then creates finished pieces in her studio
 
STATEMENT
In all of my work I approach the subject with utmost respect. I like my paintings to feel intimate and personal, never formulaic. The subject dictates the mood, temperature and texture. I start by sketching small studies until I feel I have composed a compelling abstract design.
Once I'm ready to paint with oil I try to strike a balance between being mindful of the planned design and  leaving evidence of spontaneous brushstrokes and dabs of paint.
