16″x20″ | Oil on canvas | In studio
This week I have been painting en plein air at Dutton Island, Florida. It was a great spot for big open marsh scenes it’s a quiet dirt road leading to a boat ramp not busy this time of year.
I started on a 16×20 canvas and had to work quick as the nats on steroids (gnats) were killer, I would have liked to spray ’em good but we plein air artists try to be environmentally friendly. I wanted to keep spontaneity and not get too caught up in the detail. The paint got a little heavy too quickly so I finished this one off in the studio.
