The original painting was painted outdoors – Plein Air, a phrase borrowed from the French. It captures the actual physical conditions of wind, water and sun. It is advisable to use a canvas that is small and easy to carry. The art of expressing this ultimate experience for me however demands a much larger approach. In the studio I use my plein air paintings as the inspiration for a more expanded version of the original.
