I live in a valley in Central PA. There are days when the sky is unbelievable, so here’s a plein air painting in a mini-moleskine.

I’m painting some birds for sale at a local art cafe. This guy is done in gouache on an Ampersand gesso board, which happens to be the best surface I’ve found for gouache painting. This was such a joy to paint, it’s going to be hard to let it fly free.

The approach I’ve been taking with the backgrounds on these small bird paintings is inspired by the work of Rich Pellegrino and Jeremy Mann.
