this is from yesterdays plein air study high over atlantic beach. i'm finally getting the hang of keeping the big ones loose, identical to my small ones. big brushes, liberal use of liquin, and work off the back of the brush. as hannibal smith used to say on the A Team, "love it when a plan comes together!"

was at coral bay country club doing meet and greets this past weekend and the Dunes club today doing a painting demonstration. afterwards i painted this from high on a sand dune that i just found in the middle of atlantic beach. never saw it before. love this vantage point. problem was the wind was howling and it was blowing sand at me and all my gear the whole time. couple of hours later my skin's covered in fine sand. i know... you dont know if i'm bragging or complaining LOL

painted with a few friends the other day. it was like 98 degrees when we all painted this awesome beach house on lumina ave in wrightsville beach. the old caddy sitting in front of it was the icing on the cake.

one from the docks of davis seafood. on this one i painted high key saturated color on 2/3 of the shapes. the grayed down shapes are the darks (pylons) and the mids and lights are the more vivid colors.

at this painting site i'm standing right in front of the windows of a seafood restaurant and i'm quite the dinner show as the folks watch me while they eat. the kids stand on chairs in the windows and go nuts. i guess it is interesting since most people rarely see someone outside painting. now i know what animals in the zoo feel like :D

Believe it or not junk is hard to paint! gotta simplify it to make it "read" right. my plein air attempt i was obsessing about painting the junk and wasnt looking at the big picture. when i got it home it was very confusing and i was losing the barrel and boats. in the studio i simplified the pile and the foreground. all of a sudden i could see all the elements in the painting again. youve heard the saying live and learn. for painters its "paint and learn".

Workshop Updates- ive added two new workshops to the schedule over on the right sidebar. i'll be in Franklin Georgia Oct. 20--24 and i'll also be doing a workshop at my new gallery Spectrum in Wilmington NC. i know there were some of you that couldnt make the spring WAA workshop or Bald Head Island workshops so here's your chance.
ALSO the Rehoboth Beach Delaware w/s has been changed to a one day Paint Camp for beginning painters. if youre interested in a three day plein air workshop on the 8th -- 10th give me a shout. ive got a few already interested.

did this commission for a nice family from Goochland Va. I met them while painting in the lot next to them. Tho' i think most would agree that plein air painting is tough, it does get you out there meeting nice folks. thanks margaret.
just came in out of the field with this one. based on yesterdays little study
