Plein Air Series Paintings

Judith Anderson

"Plein air" paintings are those done on site, in the "open air." The plein air painting process is entirely different from studio painting, but what I learn from the experience informs all that I do. Quite frankly, there is nothing more exhilarating than being outside, alone, with nothing but paints and a canvas between you and Mother Nature.

Plein air paintings are usually smaller. (It is difficult to finish a large painting on site, given the time constraints created by changing light conditions, etc.)

The paintings shown may be purchased from me directly. The medium for all is oil on panel. Each work sports either a black or natural wood shadowbox frame. The "Mexico" paintings were painted while staying at Casa Raab, a Bed and Breakfast in Oaxaca, Mexico, which continues to be a wonderful place for plein air painting. Should you wish to travel to Oaxaca, most of the paintings (with the exception of those listed with prices) are available at Casa Raab. (Since they are not available in the States, I have included only a sampling. Many others are available in Oaxaca.) Those listed with prices may be purchased from me directly. 70% of all paintings under the “Mexico” heading will be contributed to Friends of Megan Animal Rescue, a 501(c)3 organization operating out of Casa Raab. The tax deduction shall be to the benefit of purchasers, whether the painting is purchased here or in Mexico.
