Plein Air 1

These were all done on watercolor paper and gouache. Unless indicated, all were painted on location.


Tributes to one of my favorite landscape painter William Wendt. This master copies were done with gouache.

the huntington library has fine open feel. (jeeze, that was the best i could come up with?)

it nearly gets surrealistic the way you laid the stuff out there. and with the trees one also.

best wishes.

Holy COW! these are stunning! I think I remember you doing more figure stuff in your sketchbook-I had not idea of the breath of your landscapes!!

I still struggle with the most basic of basics, as embarrassing as that is-tonal values. Maybe it's harder to do in acrylic-I've never tried gouache.

And of course I remember you! Keep posting the great work!

I really love the wide rectangular painting with the trees, pond, and church/building. Beautifully balanced layout; has a random symmetry. You paint lovely trees, love your greens.
