I’ve been in Los Angeles teaching a small plein air workshop. Here are a few of the small sketches from the trip. Most are the paintings I do while demonstrating what to do so the artwork did not receive my full concentration. The good news is that I am finally getting better at talking while I paint after all these years.
Still have to get the bugs off the canvas on that last one.
I remember the reason I wanted to become a landscape painter when I was young was the desire to paint the beauty of California. Its been a wonderful experience to be back painting plein air here after all these years.
There was also a small portrait workshop during the week.
