Winter of '87

Plein Air Painting

All images copyright © Betty Jean Billups. All rights reserved.

This oil was captured on an old ranch I once lived on, NE of Sandpoint ID.
Painting on location in the winter is NOT an easy feat!!! Especially when you are not around any spot to warm up!!! 98% of the paintings on this web site, were all created on location, the term "en plein air" is French for such creations.

That term, had not been used in the USA since the 1920s,
until I was asked to create some full page ads,
back around 1987, to start a group that painted on Catalina Island up 'til about '94.
Those 22 ads a year, created the popular movement seen thru out the USA, almost every town that has an art group, has one that paints "en plein air"!!

GREAT art can, and is still created in the studio...
often from personal experience, or from photography. An exceptional artist,
who climbed many of the coastal mountains of Washington State, when he was a young man, Robert Walton seldom creates a painting, that does NOT have a snow capped mountain!!

Keeping with the spirit of things:


which should be the basis of painting from your soul more important than any sales, or any approval! You will love the strong beautiful paintings created by
Robert Walton.
