I’m teaching a plein air sketchbook class where we travel everywhere and ask the same questions and deal with all the same situations as if we were painting. One of the advantages of sketching is we have a lot of time to think and ask questions about what we are seeing. In our sketchbooks we can formulate our thoughts and develop ideas about our experience of the landscape. Here we are on a late winter day in York Harbor Maine.

I started painting in plein air in 2004 . I recently went out and painted with my friend Sue Jaworski Stranc who was the person that got us to go outside in the beginning. She had this book by a watercolor artist and she said “Look at these paintings, they are a beautiful! This person is painting them outside, let’s go outside and paint! ”
Sure , we thought,no sweat we will go out there and easily paint some really nice paintings! Here’s the real story!

Winter is a special time. There is great beauty, peace and quiet especially when it snows. It’s magical. I headed out with my friend Sue to paint the sugar shack at Maple Moon Farm. I met the owners a week before and they invited me over to paint. What a treat! It was awesome! To see tips and methods to paint beautiful paintings… Click here!
It snowed off and on the whole time we painted. What a great afternoon! I was happy I had my umbrella in the car. As soon as it started snowing I put it up. I had a sneaky feeling that it was going to snow off and on all afternoon. And it did ! Every few minutes a new snow squall would blow through.
Here is a peek at how I start my painting of a sugar house on a snowy late winter day.
