Plein Air Painting - Paihia, New Zealand

in ntopaz •  3 months ago 

ntopaz-image-0ntopaz-image-1ntopaz-image-2ntopaz-image-3I painted this art work last week, outdoors on location, also known as painting en plein air which is a French term for painting outdoors.

I set up my easel on the next Bay around the corner from Paihia which is located in the Bay of Island in northern New Zealand. I love the richness of the greens of the native trees growing on the cliffs.

The light was disappearing fast especially as it’s winter her so I really had to rush to get this painting finished.

Evening Light, Paihia, 7.5” x 10” (approx), oil on canvas, painted outdoors en plein air.

It must be so pleasant to stand there and paint. Live painting, but how much time does it take? You keep standing and painting for hours?

Loved your painting thought, love the trees specifically, transitions between different shades of greens in amazing.

Hello there @samuel-earp-art!

You are such an inspiration! I love your idea of painting right at the location itself and not just in a boring four corners of the studio or drawing room. I assume you get all inspired too just by looking and being one with nature.

Its truly a lovely painting! You are equally talented on this craft. May you always share your works with us.

Congrats on your curie love. Cheers! ❤

Thanks @maquemali, yeah I love painting outdoors and you can use the plein air paintings as colour studies for studio art works.

You are most welcome.. I bet its more fun painting in an open air..

I'm a bot. I detect haiku.

Wow, I've never seen the two put together in a post! Usually people are only posting the painting or the drawing, never the scene that inspired them. It's a nice scene and you did a great job with the painting, I love the colors and the shadings. Well done!

I think you have done really well by painting outside. Most people would have taken a photograph and spent the rest of the time indoors. I also like the greens and the cliffs and it is great to compare it to what you painted.
