“I enjoy painting landscapes preferably on location. On location (painting “en plein air”) the need to get the painting down quickly before the light changes too much keeps my painting fresh. And, I find that painting the scene in front of me for a couple of hours helps me to remember the subtle details later. I often use these plein air paintings as a source when creating larger studio paintings. My main focus and interest is on how to capture the light as it appears in a landscape. I paint with oil or pastel.”
