West Market – Urban plein air
Original urban plein air landscape oil painting of re-purposed old filling station still has that retro feel. Loved the color and vibrancy of this scene.
Original urban plein air landscape oil painting of re-purposed old filling station still has that retro feel. It is a joy to take these ordinary urban scenes and turn 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.
