Olive Recreation Center Plein Air First Draft

Last Sunday I painted the baseball fields at Olive Recreation Center in Burbank, California. It was hot, in the nineties, and I painted from under a sycamore tree. I tried to capture the hanging branches in the painting but it’s hard to capture the depth in this flat style of painting. I’m still working on it, and I decided to post this since the final result so far is going to be noticeably different. Lighter sky, leaves more defined lines.

St. Leon Armenian Church

Evening Plein air painting with the Weekend Warrior Painters at St. Leon Armenian Church in Burbank, CA. Thank you to the pastor for letting our group paint until 8PM. I am still working on my Cloisonnism painting technique, I have some final details to do but as it is here it’s mostly finished. I will post the final painting.

WIP painting en Plein Air at the Warbids Wings & Wheels Show

Work in process- painting en plein air in Paso Robles at the Warbids Wings & Wheels Show. Many great planes and classic cars were on display, I found a great angle to paint the rolling countryside of Paso Robles, California behind a British warplane. The weather was warm with a cool, constant wind that threatened to blow my canvas off the easel. I will post the final painting soon.
