Plein air oil paintings on MDF
Working en plein air is one of those rare activities that triggers a state of flow. I lose track of time and feel intensely connected to a place. Circumstances like the weather and the changing solar angle compel me to work quickly and to the point. I use plein air paintings to strengthen my understanding of my surroundings and to gain inspiration for working from the imagination.
