Me out plein air painting in Dry Creek Valley
I'm quite possibly one of the most inefficient plein air painters, but nonetheless, I enjoy to take my easel, and A LOT of other stuff, outdoors to paint!
There are plenty of challenges to painting outside, perhaps the most frustrating is the wind. The breeze provides relief from the heat of the day, but also, sudden wind can flip your wet painting face down onto the ground. I've spent a fair amount of time picking bugs and grass off of my paintings. C'est la vie!
Here are some of my recent paintings done in the great outdoors, under the hot, hot, hot sun.
