Plein Air art.

Welcome to the “Plein Air” section of my website. I am currently gathering photos of past plein air paintings and drawings that I completed in the past. Soon, I shall present them here.

Most of my compositional drawings for landscape paintings are competed “Plein Air”.  I enjoy and crave working out doors. As I get older I seem to need more sunlight to keep in balance.

Little Brook Farm Compositional Drawing Plein air art
Little Brook Farm – compositional drawing, drawn on site

The compositional drawing (above) was drawn on site in 3 hours.  When the client approved the composition. I returned to the farm and drew more sketches and photographed the farm.  The completed watercolor painting  took me 4 weeks to paint, back in the studio.
