Plein Air at the coast of Skagen


Right now I am at the very north of Denmarks coast for plein air painting.  Because it was quite windy I just took the most essential equipment with me. A sand sack helps a lot to stabilize the easel.

When it is so windy it is important to stick to your original idea and don’t try to include every changing situation. When the conditions had changed too much I stopped and will finish this piece later in the studio.

Plein Airs don‹ts! Don’t throw your pastel box to the ground because you got all excited about painting plein air.
