Plein Air overview

Its been over a year since I first started painting Oils outdoor and I’ve been thinking of reviewing my progress. Painting outdoors is the biggest challenge for me as there are so many factors involved in creating a successful painting. Until now I’ve not really been able to say I have produced a finished outdoor painting. So this is a chance for me to look at a years worth of pictures and see the development.

Some of these were finished at home, so they won’t be all directly comparable but I need to start somewhere.


The images are in rough chronological order and I am able to produce finished paintings in a sitting now. But photographing and reducing the images flatters the paintings. Overall I’m pleased with the progress but need to keep on practicing.
