Fall Plein Air paintings

These are some of my new fall plein air paintings, executed in different media: watercolor, gouache, and oil. “Plein Air” means painted outdoors. I like to paint just about anywhere. Someday I will be able to travel and paint. But, now I am enjoying painting locally. I often paint at Durant nature park in my neighborhood. It is amazing how many new things I see, every time I am out there (thank you Andrew Wyeth for teaching me how to see)! I have simplified my oil painting setup, so, I am able to execute more oil paintings outdoors. I am learning the oil palette of master artist Richard Schmid. As for watercolors, the master artist I follow is Joseph Zbukvic. Both do phenomenal work.

These paintings are available framed. Please click on the images for more information.

    1. Thank you! I enjoy painting outdoors. Colors change everyday and nothing looks the same! To me, leaves just move from trees to the ground and come back on the trees when spring comes. Meanwhile, they should provide plenty of material to paint from during winter. Fall colors are hard to capture: sometimes I go all out and sometimes my palette is subdued. When I was painting “Been there” (gouache painting), I was sitting on the ground. And a dog came running and started sniffing my painting! May be that is the secret to good colors!
