Sir Speedy’s – Urban plein air landscape oil painting
Original plein air urban landscape oil painting of colorful mini mart gas station. I Love taking ordinary urban scenes and turning them into vibrant, energetic art for you to enjoy and cherish.
Original plein air urban landscape oil painting of mini mart gas station Sir Speedy’s. This traditionally unpicturesque scene was a challenge to paint but the color and shapes made me want to give a try. I think I captured it quite well and this has become one of my favorites. I really love taking these ordinary urban scenes and turning them into vibrant, energetic art.
Working en plein air or “in the open air” is a wonderful way to interpret your environment. My goal is always to create the experience of that place at that time rather than record it like a photograph would.
My brushwork is loose and impressionistic. I like to work quickly and expressively. I often work pencil drawing into the wet paint to add details as well as a different mark to the painting. This is my way of combining painting and drawing into one finished completely original art work.
