PLEIN AIR PAINTING

 

I love to paint "en plein air", that is, outdoors live on the scene. It's delightful for many reasons, including the connection I enjoy with onlookers. Below are a few of my recent plein air works.

 

Challenges for plein air include the day's changes in weather and of course in light--so shadows will change in the course of creation! Plus the simple challenge of working in a fixed position for 6 or more hours at a time...with my portable studio my only lifeline. I often work larger than many plein air painters do, so you can enjoy a larger artwork for your wall that does not require you to stand 12" away to enjoy the impressionist colors and brushwork.
