Plein Air Study




I managed to fit in a quick painting on my way home from the studio today. It was a race against the sun! I managed to finish up just before the sun disappeared, then I realized I had to go to the bathroom horribly bad, being in the middle of nowhere but farmhouses I was forced to run up to the closest house and ask to use the facilities. Interestingly enough they informed me across the street was the home of Joseph Meyerhoff, the owner of the largest collection of american art in the world! Also the major funder of my college, and art galleries around the world. So that was pretty cool, really looking forward to doing more of these now that the weather is getting nice. Also, I want to start using them as reference for some more creative imaginative pieces.

I'm a big fan of these quick sketches you've been doing. Does it take you a long time to do?!

You were very lucky to do it in time. I love the colors, they look really nice.

Thanks guys! I don't think I spend more than 30 min on them, but I never timed myself. They can't take very long because otherwise the light would disappear ! I'm guessing 20 to 25 min
