American Artist’s Plein Air Painting Issue


Spring is here. Get out your paints!

American Artist’s new special issue featuring on plein-air painting has just arrived on the newsstands.

The emphasis is on landscape painting from observation. There are articles about Scott Christensen, Clyde Aspevig, Chris Blossom, Clark Hulings, and others.

They asked me to adapt material from the Color and Light book for an article about sources of light, so I covered direct sunlight, overcast light, window light, candlelight, incandescent, fluorescent, and streetlight.

I bought your book a few weeks ago. It's a terrific reference for the plein air painter (and studio painter, too.) Looking forward to more. Our family has loved Dinotopia for ages, and being able to appreciate the how and why of the illustrations makes it all the more enjoyable.
