Ruby Bay

This painting shows the view from my studio at Ruby Bay and was painted with the palette knife. The painting is currently on display at Wall to Wall Art Gallery, Nelson. Most of my little 6” x 8” paintings are done en plein air (painted outside). During the warmer season I like to go out to different locations and paint a little gem on the spot. Outside I usually paint in oil using the palette knife. The little paintings created…

Photos of Plein Air Painting at Eyebright

Our plein air painting session at Eyebright was probably the most beautiful session this autumn. Eyebright is such a lovely place to visit for the garden and the store. The weather was warm and sunny and the setting was simply gorgeous. Although, it was a bit windy and every now and then we had to chase our materials across the lawn. This time I tried to paint one of the fellow artists which, with the palette knife, was rather difficult.…

Photos of Plein Air at Isel Park

The weather is getting cooler now and it takes a bit more convincing to get out Plein Air painting. I almost didn't go because guess what, there is always something else to do which seems more important. But then I reminded myself how happy I am every time I do go Plein Air painting. I enjoy the fresh air (as long as it doesn't freeze my fingers off) and I feel productive with getting another painting done. This time I…
