Plein-Air Painting (Painting on location)

Lately the weather in Dallas-Fortworth areas has been awesome.  So I have gone out to paint twice.  It is exhilarating and satisfying at the same time.  The whole painting should typically be wrapped up within a few hours, otherwise the light changes a lot and pretty much you have to paint from memory (or a thumbnail drawing, if you have done one).

Breakthroughs in Art

I have recently had a few series of breakthroughs that has helped me push my work forward and sped up my painting some more.  I have become more painterly by watching Quang Ho’s MFA work and how he handles his paint on the canvas. It is essentially sculpting with paint, you push, pull cut into and add into shapes.  It is very liberating and teaches one to be bold.  As always, practice makes perfect.  See a series of paintings I have done below.  Thank you for visiting and Enjoy!

 

Some recent paintings

There is always something new to be learnt and to be applied.  Here are a few art work done recently. I have been watching some loose techniques by Quong Ho. I took some inspiration from him in the works below.  It is definetly my way of making art.
