     This was a demonstration for my plein air class. I did it while standing in the rain. I had to stop and pour the water from my palette numerous times during the painting process. The colors of the desert become more intense and fresh when wet like this. There is also more atmospheric  perspective in the distance with all the moisture in the air.


  1. Love the mix of warm and cools. I'm loving painting in damp weather. Schmid maintains it the best time to paint en plein air as one doesn't need to contend with changing light. Aren't there, afterall, enough things to contend with?
    Beautiful painting. Love it.

  2. Beautifully painted landscape! Love it!
