En Plein Air & Landscapes (AVAILABLE)

En Plein Air is a French term for painting "outdoors, on site and on location". It is also very addictive! And so difficult. It took me more than a year to produce anything sale-able...

To feel the wind in your hair, watching the birds and the bugs, hearing the cows and the horses - it just creates an atmosphere that somehow translates onto the canvas. I prefer painting in the mist and the rain - and that must say something. Nature has a deep, all encompassing and transformative effect and I hope you can see it in this body of work.

Cheval Voyeur Farm

The last few "quickies" from Cheval Voyeur Farm.

This was a quick oil while there was still quite a lot of water around.

A charcoal sketch done while hiding in the bushes trying to keep out of the sun!

The Courtyard

The Courtyard Hotel was the venue for our painting out in the open for a while. The painting of Deveils Peak was painted at the same location. I need more practice with buildings! We are painting in the Company Gardens at the moment and I am getting lots of practice in. Strange how the window is not centred in this building, but that is the way it is.

Painting out in the open again

For the past couple of weeks we have been painting at Cheval Voyeur in Phillipi, a beautiful farm owned by Colleen and John Beake who have welcomed us painters with open arms. Thank you Colleen and John for sharing this beautiful environment with us.
