Plein Air Painting

I enjoyed my first plein air painting session of the year at Rock Ledge Ranch in Colorado Springs, meeting with several painting buddies. We spread out through the area and spent a couple of fine hours interacting with the landscape.

I shot this little video at the end of the session. Hope you enjoy it.

In the studio...

...I've been working on a number of small studies. Before I tackle a large painting, I like to make a small version to figure out composition, light and color. Sometimes I discover that what I had in mind will not work out the way I imagined. The large paintings often turn out substantially different than the studies. Sometimes they never become large paintings. In most cases the studies make excellent little paintings in their own right with an entirely different feel than the larger ones. I've even had cases where I like the study better.

This is a work in progress. It's of a geologic wonder near San Ysidro, New Mexico. I think in some form, it will make a larger painting. There are a couple of horses in the foreground that seem to be watching the distant storm. It's very New Mexico.
