Plein Air: How to Capture Mood

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.

How We Started Painting in Plein Air

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!

Haiku Series ~ The Sea #7

The Sea #7
The Sea #7

I never knew that all these years of living along the ocean would have so many benefits .  All these people who only visit Maine in the summer have no idea of what the quiet season looks like.  Spring and fall are my favorite times on the seacoast. This is when you really get a chance to see the wildness of this place. When I am out by myself painting the late light over the big empty marsh on an autumn afternoon there is nothing quite like it.

The Sea #7   Acrylic  3.75×9.75   Available.
