West Hawaii Plein Air Painters Schedule


10.01.2014

Just Back from the Hawi Gallery

A favorite, probably because I just love to paint out there - National Energy Labs Hawaii - Wawaloli Bay - a lot of interesting techniques in the foreground and love the colors! - 14x11 - plein air oils on board:

SKOILing at the National Energy Lab a few weeks ago

I call these small paintings "SKOILS" - SKetches in OILS - they're done in about an hour and are on half of a 9x12 loose sheet of canvas.  I've made two cigar box pochade boxes (here's one - http://theislandartist.blogspot.com/2009/09/cigarbox-paintbox.html) one of which is always ready to go out the door when i run errands - on the Big Island there are paintings everywhere and I hate not to be prepared.  This skoils is from the Wawaloli Bay kid's pool with the morning light shimmering through the shallow water.  6x9 Skoil


NELH Keiki Pond Shimmer - 9x6 SKOIL


NELH Keiki Pond Shimmer 2 - 9x6 SKOIL

SKOILS are like peanuts - it's hard to just eat one!!
