This is just an example of a plein air painting I did this past summer. The sky just stopped me in my tracks. So I pulled over set up and painted this piece while driving through Mississippi. I absolutely love plein air painting and every chance I get I try to do so.
This is a painting of a moon I saw this past October. It was one of the largest moons I had ever seen and a full moon to boot! It was still light enough to see the colors in the trees and field it was over. I love painting outdoors this time of year. It’s perfect outdoors here in Meridian, Mississippi because it’s not too cool and not too warm. When we do a painting we try to create a believable illusion, however nature has one set of rules and paint has another.
