Landscapes

Plein-air paintings can be both fun and torture due to elements in nature.  Weather conditions play a great role when you are outdoors.  The sun may shine and suddenly the wind is constantly blowing.  You may see the distant mountains and well……..they could all disappear when the clouds roll in.  So, it is a challenge to get the big picture and leave out some of the elements.  Not all trees have to be included.
