I'm an outdoor enthusiast and enjoy art. The combination draws me to plein air art. I am not an artist but like to observe plein air artists in action. I'm trying my hand at sketching and loving it.
I have started experimenting with colored pencils. Though I'm not very talented it is fun to visit familiar places I have hiked in the past and see things in a totally different way, through the eye of an artist. It's fun to notice things I never took note of before.
Just being outside is fantastic.
Earth tones. The colors of nature.
American landscape and folk art. The Hudson River School and the impressionists.
Observant, curious, experimental.
