Plein Air Ses­sions

Project details

For ex­er­cises reas­ons I star­ted to go for quick plein air ses­sions. On small wood pan­els I tried to cap­ture the im­port­ant parts of a motive. I worked manly with oils with brush and even with the palette knife. The chal­lenge is al­ways to catch the pro­por­tions and the col­or val­ues.

Always in mind: Establish some important landmarks - sketch a few lines, which defines important angles - correct things which are wrong - see the right value, chroma and hue - try to set confident brush strokes - avoid getting lost in detail.
