Red Buds at T.C. Steele  2017

 He will be demonstrating plein air with oils in the entry way of the Caveat Emptor Building  This oil painting was done plein-air on April 12, 2017 with the Upland plein-air painters. It represents my favorite style of painting. Working directly from life with the references all around me.  After so many years I find I rely very little on preliminary sketches.
I search for my subject and lay it in tonally with a fast drying glaze. As that sets up I begin applying finish colors.  Occasionally I will spend a little time finishing in my studio but essentially as in this case the painting is completed in situ.
I most enjoy being in the moment and capturing my subject as a recognizable image in real time.  Don Geyra
