Plein Air at Bob’s Point



Ragwort at Bob's Point
5 x 7


Right near my home is South Cooking Lake where I’ve been doing some plein air painting. The Marsh Ragwort is blooming and making a glowing golden display. There was a lovely little boat in the foreground but I decided to focus on the yellow flowers.

I admit to being a less than outstanding plein air painter but the experience of painting quickly before the light changes is such good practice that I keep at it.The fast brushstrokes of plein air paintings and my studies are slowing affecting my studio paintings making them livelier and juicier. Being an artist is very much a work in progress and a life long one at that.

I just wanted to let you know about a new forum for artists as well as musicians, fashion designers, and filmmakers, http://www.PutItOn.com. As an artist I think that the mission is really great. The site gives you a free gigabyte of space for portfolio, there is no commission taken for sales, audio and visual works can been streamed in their entirety, you can create live personal broadcasts for your followers, and anything you write will be translated into 10 languages. So check it out!
