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 using the Buy Now button unless marked Sold. 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 choose to travel there, many more paintings are available at Casa Raab. Those shown here are available in the States and may be purchased from me directly. 70% of the purchase price of all paintings shown under the “Mexico” heading will be considered a donation to the animal rescue operation (FOManimalrescue.org) at Casa Raab. That 70% is fully tax deductible as a donation to a 501(c)(3) organization under IRS regulations.
