Painting en Plein Air – Acrylic

painting of an old town hall

Old Town Hall Hattingen

Painting en plein air can be fun and I quite enjoy it. Last Sunday I took advantage of the sunshine and went to a nearby town to paint one of their famous buildings.

The old town hall built 1576 now houses the town´s gallery and on occasion offers chamber music concerts, lectures, and book readings. 

My trusted easel served me well and I stayed for a few hours to capture the light and colours. I added the finishing touches back home in my studio. As you can see it is not one of my normal landscapes. The acrylic was also more loosely painted almost like a watercolour abandoning my usual love for detail.

Please contact me via my contact page to enquire about the original or limited edition prints which are available in different sizes. Commissions are also welcome.

You will find more pictures here.

  2. Beautiful painting, as always! I’ve always wanted to try painting “en plein air” but have always assumed that it would be too much of a hassle to get all my supplies outside with me. I’m also curious, do you bring all your paint with you, or just a few colors? I have giant tubs of paint, so bringing them all would be very cumbersome. Also, I’m assuming you have a portable easel?
