SUNSET, Pacific Northwest Plein Air Competition, Day 4
Sunset and West Hills, 9 x 12 oil
Up here at Panorama Point there is so much to see that it's hard to decide what to paint. I would need a 360 degree canvas ten feet tall to capture what is going on. The sun is coming and going between cloud layers, so at the moment, the most drama is directly to the West. Ah, sun, you can hide, but we can still find you!
As a plein air painter, I spend many contented hours sitting in some inspiring spot with the sights and sounds of the outdoors, capturing my impressions of light and color. Back in the studio, these works expand, recreating a particular place in a special moment.
