I ventured out one evening with the SocalPapa group to paint a night scene. I’ve done studio night/noir scenes before, but never pleinair. This was a great experience for me! I loved the ambiance and the focus of the moment. My eyes worked differently at night and this new visual sensation was extraordinary. This is the first, but not the last.
I make my oil paintings are from professional grade oil paints. I allow the brilliance of the colors to enhance the view and emotion of the work. The goal is to express the Southern California light and the feeling of the day in which I painted it.
