Victoria Pearmain is primarily a plein air painter, working in oil on canvas, paper and panels in a painterly style. She has been influenced by many of the American and European landscape painters, including Corot, Daubigny, Monet as well as William Merritt Chase, Edward W. Redfield and many others.
Victoria's subjects include many scenes in and around Chattanooga, TN such as Chester Frost Park, the Tennessee River, and the Chickamauga Battlefield.
"When I look for places to paint, I am attracted to open spaces, fields, farms and water views. I am inspired by un-manicured places where nature is allowed to flourish.
I, also, enjoy painting houses and industrial structures, places where man has left a mark, but nature is reclaiming the space.
I love to paint and I love to be outside."
