Fort Collins, CO
With my landscape work, my focus is on capturing the essence of the scene before me. One aspect of this is a realistic rendering of color, light, and atmosphere. This requires direct observation and is why my studio work begins in the field with a plein-air study. But observing the physical aspects of nature isn’t the only reason I paint outdoors; for me, the sensory experience of being there is just as important. What better way to get to know a place intimately than to sit for a couple of hours and contemplate it while painting?
Front Range Afternoon exemplifies what I’m trying to achieve in a plein-air piece. This 9” by 12” study was completed in about an hour-and-a-half on a warm and clear afternoon in Fort Collins, Colorado.
