Plein Air Painting at Home

A photo showing a plein air painting setup in a field with Jullian half-box easel.

The weather has been warm and dry the last two days so I made the most of it by trying to get an early start to this year's plein air painting.  Fortunately our house sits on a few acres and I was able to just walk out into the back yard to get some painting done.   I keep this field well mowed so that the shaded locations are easy to get to and the ticks are kept a little bit under control.

Although I paint on location regularly I only sell one or two true plein air paintings each year.  The rest are used as studies for larger paintings or starting points for studio work.
