Plein air Landscapes Most of my paintings are done on site, My Plein air paintings are either acrylic or oil on canvas . They express the joy I feel in nature and reflect a passion for depicting all kinds of weather or season. Palette knife is sometimes used instead of a brush.
Children When outdoors painting I sometimes ( rarely) include figures I see especially children on the beach, at sailing lessons or fishing.
I have done commissions for people who want to celebrate a special occasion with a painting done from an old photograph of their now grown up children, at play when they were young. Not posed but actively doing an activity like running into the lake or climbing up huge rocks.
My approach is my usual impressionistic style based on a photograph they supply me with. I even once did a favourite calico cat in pastel. These days I mostly work in acrylic or oils which is the medium I select for my landscapes. Aside from my numerous ink and pencil sketches.
