The First Plein Air Oil . . .

“Late Shadows”
Oil on linen on panel 12″ x 16″

Here it is . . .Not especially the best technique, but a two hour effort to capture the light through the trees. I had an absolute BALL painting this!!! 12 x 16 inches, oil on linen on wood panel.

  1. Wow, I can’t believe this is your FIRST plein air in oil. Obviously you have wc experience, but still, well done. I don’t know if I’m ready to post my first one!

  2. Hey Mike,
    great kickoff to your blog! It has much of the same excitement and educational value as you have on your website so I can tell this will be a fun and rich experience for all participants.

    And woah, baby, you are a “natural” with oil paint.
    Cheers – Carol

    PS — if someone wanted to buy a painting from you (one that they see here) how do they go about it?

    I will be linking these and other pieces directly to EBay bid sites. That is going to take a week or two so I can figger out how to put all the right pieces in place. Rest assured, they will be made available at reasonable prices, too! Thanks for asking.
