New Smyrna Beach Paint Out 2018

New Smyrna Beach2018

The first week of December 2018, found us in New Smyrna Beach. I was invited to participate in the annual New Smyrna Beach paint out so Janet and I actually drove all the way from Kerhonkson to this Florida beach town, loading up the Forester with frames and clothing and hoping for the best.
These are a few of the paintings I painted during this weeks efforts,

Hudson Valley Plein Air 2018

This is one of my entries to the Hudson Valley Plein Air festival 2018 which was held the second week of October 2018. I painted the scene on a rainy night down at the Strand in Kingston, NY.
It was awarded the Best in Show for which I am grateful to my fellow artist participants that judged the show as well as the staff at the Walkill school of Art who made this event possible.

Florida Moonrise

Florida Moonrise
Here are two versions of Florida Moonrise that I painted over two days. While finishing up a  plein air painting on the property of the Conservancy of Southwest  Florida I noticed the moon peeking over the palm trees and quickly batted out a 10" x 14" sketch of the effect. I resolved to come back the next day and try a larger version, arriving well before the effect of the moonrise but also allowing for the later moonrise time so that I could lay in the great masses and composition so that all would be ready for the final color adjustments once the lighting and moonrise were at peak effect.
