Plein Air

Plein air painting is outdoor on-location painting. It is different from sketching or other indoor life work.

All these paintings were completed on-location.  I do not re-work plein air paintings in the studio; they are very much about the immediate time and space when they were created.

I paint on handmade Alla Prima Pochade boxes and have setups for all size situations: the small is a Belly River box, and I also have a larger Yellowstone box.  My main box is the 8×10 Blackfoot box.
