In reviewing a number of websites for plein air event descriptions, plein air organizations and groups, and plein air artist web sites (individual and social) there is a range of definitions of what constitutes a plein air work. What do you think is appropriate? Obviously, what an artist does to get a work representative of their style and present it to the public for sale or judging is fine. I am only interested in what you think should be legitimately labeled a plein air work. Here are a… Continue

I would like to hear from artists who have participated in plein air contests where an entry fee (jury fee or just to participate fee) was paid and prize money was involved. I would like to know if most contests work on the honor system or have specific rules in the following aspects:
1) Did your in-process, unused stamped blank surfaces, or completed paintings have to be checked in each evening and checked out the next morning for an event that lasted more than on day? The obvious resaon… Continue

I hope this picture came out ok- I often hear artists complain about finding time to paint with so many family obligations and all, totally understand that. But one thing I have found is that as a plein air artist I am usually in some awesome scenes, usually but not always natural environments. My husband usually joins me on big trips and because we are both looking for really the same thing- open out doors not many people. Because of this… Continue

What a grand day it was! Thanks to Don ( our fearless leader ) for setting this up! The pictures Don took are fabulous and we certainly are a bunch of very good looking artists!

HI everyone WIP plein air today.
Oil on 40x50cm (16x20ins)canvas stretcher completed to this stage in 90 minutes. Needs a little more painting time to warm up the forground grass area and fine tuning of the middle distnce shore. Otherwise I am pretty happy with it. I feel its a bit too green, but probably not feasible to change it at this stage without loosing the paintings freshness
Underpainting with 25mm hardware brush and finished… Continue

time I painted there and I fell in love with this beautiful
nature reserve. Although it was quite beautiful , we had
horrific weather , it was windy like I rarely saw before… Continue

Just wanted to thank those who came out today and meeted me at 9am in the Sope Creek Parking Lot. Marsha Hamby Savage, Greg Hozhauer, Judith Surowiec, Diana Pratt Dice joined me and my wife Suzie for a brisk walk to the creek .5 miles away. Check out some of the photos we shot and maybe consider this location for yourself to try out sometime. This time of year is the best in my opinion. I was not pleased with my two watercolors, but I have been painting oils all summer and have gotten a little… Continue

I did this painting form a photo(along with some pencil sketches) I took while wandering around temple bar Dublin, I think it's got a plein air feel to it.
#Working with charcoal or pencil can be a good substitute to working in oils if time does not permit

I know this spot well, and thought it would be dry
as well, but sooo dry that I didn't know.
And what do you know, there was lying an old rotten
barge, ... what a gem!!
Pity that I forgot my turp, on the other hand, a good
lesson to paint what thicker.

Ever wonder what to do when fall colors turn values topsy-turvy? In this week's blog article
I discuss this exception to John F. Carlson's 4 Value Planes. And I also answer that all important question, "How long does it take to drive from St. Petersburg, Fl to Switzerland?" What? Drive where? From… Continue

Utrecht is a great city in Holland.
Especially on Saturday, busing with people
and all kind of little markets everywhere.
We had an appointment in a town nearby but I just couldn't
resist to try and capture a little scene of the big city
in the middle of our country.

Went to De Steeg today, because the local
newspaper and news channel reported that the
low water level was quite extreme over there.
It turned out to be a little exaggerated, compared
to the harbours in Nijmegen or Arnhem.
I found a nice view of a shipyard instead, a bit complex
but a nice practice.…
