"AMERICAN FALLS"
8 x 8 Oil on linen
 J.R. Baldini   
 American Contemporary Landscape Artist

Contemporary American plein air landscape oil paintings 

Plein air painting is a different experience than studio painting. 
For the artist and the viewer...
If the artist works in a studio, they most likely work from photographs, which involves a process of transferring the 2 dimensional surface of the photograph to the 2 dimensional surface of the canvas.  Painting outdoors trains the eye to work with atmosphere
The environment engages all of the senses to record the essence of the subject. and not just a photographic likeness. 

The artist learns to make decisions and work quickly to engage the changing light and the experience of the artist is hopefully tranferred to the viewer.
