Patricia Doyle and gallery artists explore the landscape. Practiced, yet effortless — sprezzatura.

Single strokes of paint build roofs on houses and populate flocks of birds on the shore. A stripe of color demarcates a table edge or an ocean horizon. A few flicks from a brush become shrubs and trees, washes of paint create entire mountainsides.

What unites these paintings is repeated experimentation with material and tools to make the complicated look easy, and the complex look simple.
