Plein-Air Painting - In or Out?: Demonstration: "From My Window"

When I steped back to check the painting I noticed that the curtains matched the painting! This did not impact the painting at all, but was a pleasant surprise.

Here is the completed painting ready to roll into my traveling tube. I tape as many as 3 layers of pre-primed linen to different sized boards for ease in painting in the field. The masonite base itself is primed and ready to use as well.

Back in the studio I restretched the piece onto bars.

Now you decide -- is this a plein-air, or studio painting?

Wishing you great painting wherever you may be!
