Plein Air Oil Painting

After the exhibition, we drove up to an Old Gaol, and set up our easels there. 

We painted at this spot last winter with Greg, so I was very interested how different it looks under summer sunshine. 

I'm reasonably happy with this one. I stood closer to the building, and chose a portrait framework. 

We spent 3 hours there. Kate seemed a bit frustrated by her work...
I think these things happen from time to time. It's an act of doing that's precious and worthwhile. It's a very noble thing to do, spending some time painting outdoor. 
We both love it. 

It was a gorgeous day. 

Oil on panel. 16 x 20 in.

Your plain air paintings are great. It's really hard to do big work outside with all the elements just waiting to defeat you -- moving sun, shifting shadows, wind (!). So much easier to take photos or do little sketches and then work in the studio. I like your audacity and sense of fun!

Thank you so much for leaving your kind comments. I wonder if you paint outdoors yourself.
There's beauty everywhere in nature, and we're fortunate to be able to have a conversation using visual language.
