The plein air painting is done on location in a short timeframe (usually under two hours) with the objective to capture the feeling and color of the subject rather than produce a finished result.  These are field studies used to bring the essence of nature into subsequent studio paintings.  The blending of the artist with his natural surroundings transfers an intimate sense of place to the canvas.  Many collectors purchase these paintings for the purity and sponteneity of the technique.  These paintings are done mostly in oil, but, on occasion, in watercolor and other mediums.
Also, on this page, I am including some of my small studio studies.  I will often complete a small study to test and visualize an idea prior to completing a larger painting.  They, like my plein air paintings, are taken to various stages of completion.
