Plein air oils!





Plein air paintings done over the last few days. All are oil on canvas or canvas panel, and most are about 14"x18" (the bottom one is 20"x28"). This is my first week of plein air oils. Watercolor on location now seems easy by comparison. Most of these will be reworked at least a little bit in the studio. Still learning how to handle all that wet paint on the canvas and keep it from turning to mud.
