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 2 setups: the small is a Belly River box, and I also have a larger Yellowstone box.

Older Plein Air Paintings
I started plein air painting in August 2009. This is a sampling of work from those early years of my plein air journey.
