Although it was quite cold today , I decided to go out and paint at the
Domaine Vert , a park that is located about 12 to 15 kilometers from
my home .I also wanted to try the new snowshoes I bought recently .
It was -10 Celcius today but it was a beautiful day . I am happy with
my painting and liked the experience .I've added a few photos for you
to see .…

The sun came out...finally...here in Wisconsin's north woods, the Nicolet National Forest, and that meant everything goes on hold...must paint. It was a cold December day...at three degrees...so, I decided it might be good to take a few extra pics and demonstrate how I...or (we) in the wintry world gear up to take on the elements, the cold specifically.
I wore three thermal shirts...layers are important, and over that a very warm outdoor's coat...also waterproof...and I come prepared… Continue

Okay, this post
is not about Plein Air painting but I couldn't find any plein air paintings of the Virgin with Child! So, instead I used Bouguereau. I also included a fun fact about Christ being born in Bethlehem that I bet you don't know! Have a Blessed… Continue

Winter break starts today, Hope to get out and paint in the snow, will start a fire to keep warm. The snow has been piling up for hours should be some amazing images out there. Temps are still in the upper 20's paint should be fine in my gear bag.

"Karen, painting" Oil on Linen, painted entirely on location, Dena Kirk
I have been thinking for awhile (yes, that can be dangerous!) about plein-air shows and competitions. My very first plein-air event was with the Rocky Mountain Plein-Air Painters, which, at that time, was held in Estes Park, CO. I was so thrilled to have been accepted. I was a fairly established artist, but not yet in the world of plein-air… Continue

Thanks for that, I use charcoal for my initial sketches for oil painting aslo,it's a clumsy kind of material, but I like that painterly quality you get with it.

It was quite pleasant today 30 F and cloudy. I feel this picture captures the essence of the day. We went in the afternoon and by 4:30pm it was getting dark. Last week we went to Vernon and painted a colorful civil war era barn with tiles on the side. It was a lot colder, 3 F, but very sunny with a very blue sky.

Lillian Garcia Roig is a plein air artist well worth checking out.
Here are some examples of her work - all done outside. Her statement is below the images.
My formal painting concerns have led me to use the conservative landscape as my subject and traditional plein-air painting as my process, in my attempts to reconcile the abstract nature of painting with its representational role. From a distance, I draw the viewer into what is first… Continue

I've traveled and painted through France before but, never in Paris. I had a past preconceived idea of Parisians so I avoided Paris because of my weak French skills. I just spent 1 1/2 weeks painting on the streets of Paris with my partner Anne Schreivogl who used to live in France, therefore fluent in French. It was a wonderful experience and I found the Parisians very engaging and friendly. As it turns out, my language skills were just fine as I provided the Parisians with cheap… Continue

I love painting in foreign locals because it is a chance to sit quietly and absorb my surroundings. I can't help but feel sorry for the tourists in the large groups being herded along, barely having time to snap a quick photo, because they are missing so much.
In Europe when you purhase a meal you own the table, so I look for the cafe table with the best view and then buy breakfast or lunch so I can paint. Here I am in the famous location of Van Gogh's painting Foram Square in Arles,… Continue

I'm in trouble now. I've discovered Plein Air artists. For years I painted outside and called it on-site painting. Where have you been? Actually, it's where I have been - working as a manufacturer; and still am, but morphing into OMG semi retirement.....can this be? I don't know what happened when I found Don Maier's art on fineartamerica.com but it was sneaky. And now I'm hooked. I can't stop thinking of painting outside again. I haven't wanted to do something this badly for years! What have… Continue
