Painting on location in North Vancouver, BC

Plein-Air Painting

Looking North from Dog MountainMystery Lake, Mnt. SeymourIMG_3928 (2)Lynn Creek StudyFor the last couple of months I have been painting on location on the north shore of Vancouver, BC.  I enjoy getting out of my studio and capturing first impressions of the streams, trees, and mountains.

Some of these plein aire sketches were used to create studio paintings but I find that for me, painting outdoors is a great way to learn and improvise. Time and weather force you to keep the paintings simple. Most of the time I work outdoors using the easel that’s in the photograph of Lynn Creek.

I have included a few more examples of recent plein aire paintings.Stream Study, Mnt. Fromme
