    Good eye, yeah its Castle Green. You probably have some great stories from Art Center about Pasadena. Hope you're well.

    "None of these feel like they are from a real place with distinct characteristics of rather they are made of the generic art-mark symbols used so often by the Saturday morning "how to paint a landscape" TV show or in the stacks of mass-produced factory canvases for sale in furniture stores."

    thats a wierd comment; these to me seem the opposite of generic- theyre clearly the product of the place and time they were made. the light and colour are so accurately observed, they glow... i dont get that comment at all
    im trying to do landscape studies and i have a big page with all of these paintings arrayed on it, just to remind myself how it should be done, i love em

    Two new digital pieces done in photoshop with some of my traditional paintings manipulated into the images for more interesting effects.

    I love the new stuff! Especially the alien planet outpost--the way the scene is lighted, and the composition. I assume this is the surface of one of a few large moons orbiting the huge gas giant planet in the background. I like it when scenes incorporate both art and science like this. It makes me think of James Gurney's approach with his Dinotopia images.

    Dahami,

    Thanks, yeah I'm a sucker for space expansion SF. Jims always an inspiration for me.

    Exdakly,
    thanks, painting from life really opened my eyes to color and light and I try to incorporate it into my work where I can.

    Just back from carmel where I taught private lessons for a student for a week. These were some of my outdoor demos from the class. I posted a step by step of the mission painting on my blog
    All paintings were completed in one sitting in 3 hours or less.

    Wow. Just wow. These plein air paintings are absolutely fantastic. Thank you for sharing them. The 2nd one especially blows me away.

    I've recently begun to get into plein air painting myself, and I've been learning a lot! It's definitely extremely difficult and frustrating, but well worth it. Do you have any suggestions for someone just starting out on painting outdoors? Do you ever go back to your paintings, or are they all alla prima? What's the biggest you've worked? What is your setup like?

    I will try to photograph some of my recent paintings and post them up some time.

    Thanks,
    To answer your questions

    Starting out I recommend locking in the light and shadow patterns in big poster like shapes in the first twenty minutes this preserves your initial view even as the light changes. My blog has a number of art demos of my process.

    I finish my paintings alla prima and if I don't like them when I bring them home I will set them up in my studio and paint them from scratch on a fresh canvas. That way I don't mix studio and outdoor work.

    I have a number of setups and sizes; for the Carmel paintings I was using a 12x16 Artworks Essentials classic box.
    For larger paintings I have a take it easel which is based on the old style gloucester easels. I also have a couple of sizes of Open Box M kits

    I paint up to 30x40 inches outside my usual size is 20x24 to 24x30 when I am not getting on a plane to travel. The largest paintings I've finished alla prima are 36x48 but that is really an effort and 30 x40 inches is my practical limit for now.

    Dpaint, you are where I personally have dreams of being.

    You are a force at the galleries, and apparently you do commercial video game work as well. That makes your craft have even more depth.

    For me, I think that is the best part. The ability to handle the contemporary sci-fi and fantasy concepts and also having the depth of gallery work as well. Being succesfull at both, however, is mount everest of its own.

    I applaud you.

    Some new stuff. Two shows and some personal fantasy and scifi stuff.

    First show is fifteen large paintings (18x24 to 36x48) inches for my seascapes and shorelines show, all oils all studio work
    The reception for this show is in Saint Simons Island GA at Anderson Gallery on Oct 7th


    Next is twenty four paintings, mostly small works for a local VA show all oils, mostly plein air
    Recption for the show is at Narmada Winery in Amissville VA on friday the 30th of Sept
    If anyone is interested in coming by and saying hi there is more info on my website

    and last is some personal work for production and illustration painted in photoshop, sometimes with traditionally painted elements. The barbarian in the cave is a reworked older painting I did for Mayfair games.

    Hi dpaint,
    I really enjoy the quality of light in your landscapes. Excellent work! How small are the small plein air paintings?

    Great update of stuff! The sea oats, skies, waves and marsh pieces are really nice! And the dragons have a nice, kind of epic thing going it seems...like dragons should have. The last one, icy fortress, is right out of Lovecraft is it not?
