Bailly draws and paints as he explores cities and landscapes. Drawing is his manner of processing the world to develop a sense of place. The works on paper inform his large paintings. Working in situ, on location en plein air, is essential to Bailly’s practice, as it records a direct experience and perspective of place. The drawings document not only the appearance of a place but also the ambiance, weather, and time.
The In Situ works on this project are 7 x 10 inches / 18 x 26 centimeters on Arches Watercolor Paper. They are generally executed in graphite, but sometimes supplemented with ink, acrylic, or watercolor.
