Five Mixed Media Plein Air Sketches of Water

Plein air mixed media sketches

I got out plein air painting again, for the third time so far this spring. The first two times I painted meadow scenes, so I went somewhere different this time, and focused on water. I feel like these really capture the limited palette of this time of year, and it is a delight to be out, especially since I’ve been in a lot lately, and the weather has not been very accommodating.

These impressions were captured and recorded quickly. Sketching like this gets my juices flowing, and sketched motifs eventually appear in my finished work. It is amazing the variety you can capture looking in different directions from the same spot.

I work to amplify good wherever I find it. I love color, texture, beauty, great ideas, nature, metaphor, deliciousness, genuine spirituality, and exploring new territory. I encourage authenticity, nurture creativity, champion sustainability, promote peace, and hope to foster a new renaissance where we all are free to be our most fulfilled, multifaceted, and terrific selves.
