Review of "Painting the Unknown" at Northlight Gallery, Millinocket
"When I go out plein air painting, I like to think from a hiker's point of view and to really get down into it," said Branca, who climbed down a steep slope and propped his canvas between two boulders in order to paint his composition as close to the stream as possible.
