"Salt Air" plein air landscape painting by Robin Weiss

"Salt Air"  12x9 oil on panel  $700


My goal when painting outside is to authentically capture the feel of a place and how I felt being there. Sometimes I am successful, most times not but the lure of achieving that mysterious amalgamation of craft and essence of place keeps me trying and makes me the artist I am.

I think I came close with this painting but not until I brought it back to the studio, put away all the reference and went back into the wet paint with just the memory of the sights and sounds, the smell of the salt air, the scream of the gulls, alone on a secluded beach down the Seven Sisters road.
