Landscapes

I paint Plein Air landscape most often. Being outside with an easel, a pallette and handfull of paint brushes, in all kinds of weather and in all sorts of environments is my preference.

Results depend on some combination of skill, strength and luck. I use tactics to plan out the parts of a painting so I'm ready to paint the shadows when the light is right. Deciding how big a panel to use depends on how much time I have to paint. Travelling with just the essentials but being completely prepared is my goal. Learning how to deal with annoying insects, curious admirers and territorial dogs has to be considered. Even anticipating the rising and falling tides are occasionally part of my strategy.

However, three or four hours listening to the waves slapping the shore, breathing fresh air, concentrating on what things really look like, and making a scene come to life on the canvas is joyful work.
