Plein Air Painting

All of the landscape on this web site, were created "en pleinair" which is French for "in the open air",
vs painting in the studio.

This art term, had NOT been used in the USA since the 1920s.
Around 1987 an artist from Catalina Island asked me to create ONE ad for her, to promote a new group she wanted to start:
Plein Air Painters of America (PAPA)
I informed Denise, that one ad was tossing money away...
so I ended up creating 22 full page ads a year,
from 1987 thru 1995, for the original 27 art members.

Now there is hardly a town that has an art group, that does NOT paint "en plein air"!!!

BUT, 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.
