Plein Air Moab 2 by Pam Holnback

Near Canyonlands
9" x 12" Oil
$195.00 + $10. s/h
click here to bid

This is the second plein air painting from my recent trip to Moab, Utah.  We stopped painting around 4:00  because we wanted to head further down the road to photograph the late afternoon shadows on the canyon walls.  At the time, I thought I'd come back and add more to the piece, but now, I'm not going to.  It works as is.

Here I am painting away...I know, my umbrella should be all white on the outside and gray on the inside.  But, my all white umbrellas is so large (it covers my easel, me, anyone who's looking) that I use it only in my back yard.  This one was left over from when the kids were small, and being my frugal self, I'm using it!

Plein Air Moab by Pam Holnback


Late Afternoon On The Colorado
11" x 14" Oil
$295.00 + $10. s/h

I just got back from a 10 day trip to Moab, Utah.  It is an incredibly beautiful location and should be on every one's bucket list.  It's like Disneyland for the outdoorsman with 2 National Parks (Arches and Canyonlands), hiking, touring, mountain biking, river rafting, 4 wheeling, ATVing, OTVing, so many photo ops;  the list goes on and on.  

Moab is about 7 hours from Colorado Springs.  We took 1 1/2 days to travel each way stopping numerous times.  


While there I participated in part of the 2nd annual "Plein Air Moab."  It's a week long event where artists can paint within a 50 mile radius and be involved in 3 Quick Draw paint outs.  This was my location, and painting, for the first Quick Draw which was held at the Red Cliffs Lodge Winery which sits along the Colorado River.

Impressionistic Plein Air Still Life -Shrimp Pots- by Pam Holnback

Shrimp Pots
Alaskan plein air #6
6" x 8" oil on canvas on board
$100.00 + $10. s/h

I've mentioned the challenges of plein air painting, and have mentioned some additional challenges of plein air painting on a boat, ie:  changing light, changing reflections on the water, high glare.  Another one is boat movement.  As the boat sways and rocks slowly with the water, you aren't always aware of this.  But, when you're painting and look up and the shadow right in front of you is different, you just go with what was there!  You can't keep changing light and shadow.
