Theres nothing more exciting than capturing a landscape painting on site. The painting itself comes alive in a whole new way. I enjoy painting freely when out in the elements, letting my brush do all the work. I paint quick, making bold brushstrokes and lots of texture. I even throw in some natural elements, for example my Hotel del painting, I actually threw in some sand onto the wet paint that made up the foreground. Each outdoors painting has a unique story behind them.
I like to joke with the passer by people taking pictures of the place I paint and say to them ” taking a picture is too easy, you should try painting.”More than capturing a painting outdoors, the interaction of talking with people is my favorite part.
