Remnants from last weekend, fireside painting studies at the oregon coast.
This year i’ve been feeling inspired to start getting outside with my tools and venture into *plein air painting. I ordered a *pochade box so i can travel light.
Maybe nature will surprise me and i’ll fall in love with some open field, call it Muse.
Maybe nature will avenge me and i’ll get murdered by a serial killer in a forest whilst painting trees.
Maybe i’ll continue to play it safe and never venture further than my first love, the beach.
*Plein Air: painting outdoors “open air”
*Pochade Box: Self contained artists studio in a wood box, designed to be used out of doors and carry the bare necessities. Since they are small and lightweight they can be held in a hand, balanced on a lap, attached to a camera tripod.
