Painting the landscape on location - “en plein air” - can result in breathtaking works of art. It can also be challenging. To suggest sunlight so that it reads in a painting hung indoors, one has to “key up” and make luminous even the darkest shadows. Changing atmospheric conditions add yet more difficulty, as do the shifting shadow patterns beneath trees with each passing minute.
Shown above and below are examples of Carl Samson's landscape paintings.
