Plein Air Painting


All of the landscape paintings on this web site
were created "en plein air"...
which is French for "on the spot", "on location"...
NOT in the studio, or from photographs!

This section is shared due to they are all WATER SCENES.
When anyone is usually asked: "What color is water?
"...what is the first thing that comes to mind?
Well, this proves that whatever you might have come up with,
is NOT ALWAYS SO!

Primarily, water in a landscape usually reflects the sky above, or surrounding items.
BUT, other things occur: like depth, wind factor, angle that it is viewed, etc.
About the one single element in MOST landscapes
(even the ocean, far out from the shore)
is that it has a strong horizontal "surface".

And that is a major learning element of painting on location!
