In a continuous journey of learning I have ventured into 'plein air' painting (time allowing with all my other painting!) I spent 4 days in beautiful Pembrokeshire, South West Wales with my partner and fellow painter Rob Ijbema. We camped in a field with just a tap, no washing facilities and our lovely campfire. Everyday we went out with our easels and walked along the cliffs looking for a great spot to paint, of which there are so many! This painting is the only one I feel hits the spot, apparently it takes 100 plein air paintings before you have really good ones, therefore I have around 90 to go! But I love this one, it is raw and feels just how the day was. Plus I painted this in oils and I am new (ish) to them. Plein air has extra challenges, the weather, insects, people watching and logistics to name just a few. Over the 4 days we had 3 gorgeous sunny days, however this painting was done on a windy early afternoon on a cloudy chilly day...the sun came out later which made for a beautiful sunset.
Anyway! Here is my painting. I have simply called it Marloes, which is the small village in Pembroke that it was painted.
