Pamela C. Newell earned her BFA at the University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth. Her landscape and still life paintings are created in soft pastel or oil and reflect her love of nature. She uses rich color to describe light and mood and paints “en plein air,” or from life in the studio. She is a member of Oil Painters of America, a Signature Member of the American Impressionist Society and a Signature member of the National Oil and Acrylic Painters Society. She is a sought-after instructor throughout the region. Her work is found in the Permanent Collection of the Richmond Art Museum and many private and corporate collections.
When painting, I describe only the essence of a subject leaving out unnecessary details; painting the effect of light, not objects. I want my work to evoke a feeling and sense of place; allowing the viewer to connect with their own experience and complete the story. My paintings reflect the mark of my hand – showing brushstrokes or pastel marks. My goal is to uplift the spirit and reflect the beauty I find all around.
