Plein Air Convention in Monterey

I have been invited to be an instructor again at the 3rd annual Plein Air Convention during the week of April 7-11, 2014  in Monterey California.   This is the largest convention for outdoor painters, and I encourage plein air painters everywhere to come to the convention.  And if you are a “The Grand View” viewer or member attending the Convention, I invite you to paint with me on location during the week.

If you are interested in attending, contact http://www.pleinairconvention.com/ for…

Painting a Moving Target, by Stefan Baumann

Painting a moving target like waves in the ocean isn’t easy but there is a rhythm to nature and also to waves, and this pattern of movement can be captured in a brief time as I have done in this painting.
