One more plein air for the weekend

I stayed home and painted in my backyard on Monday. This is the garage/studio.

Studio east side

6″ x 8″ oil on canvas

The area where we live was semi-rural when we moved there, 25 years ago. It’s been developing more and more quickly but we’re fortunate to have a 1 acre lot that backs up to a forested creek. There’s quite a bit of wildlife in that little forest including a family of deer. As I was painting this, a young buck walked right out in front of me and munched on some of the shrubs just to the left of the above scene.

  1. Hi Bill,
    I’m by no means an art expert, but I do think this oil looks one of your better ones 🙂 I love your ink and watercolours though!
    All the best,


  2. Wow, this is great. I’ve finally moved away from my comfort zone of charcoal into pastels and watercolor. My birth family all work with oils, and I’m trying to get brave enough to try it. Thanks for the inspiration.


  3. Hi Bill

    Love this piece, Bill. Great palette on the previous piece as well.

    It is an honor to be mentioned in your list of plein aire painters and I thank you very much.

    …will be back looking for more of your stuff. 🙂

    Take care..


  4. lifebylisa, I’m glad to know you found some inspiration here. I also fight to get myself out of my comfort zone. Good luck with your pursuit.

    sluggabohn, I’m sorry you feel jealous but I’m glad you like the work.
