John Budicin's Plein Aire Landscapes

Here's another link sent by Dierdre. This very nice demo shows the very simple massing of forms in the early stages of a plien aire landscape painting.

John Budicin paints outdoors from life, never photos. "When I want to paint, I head out the door to find a scene that will spark my interest. This may take hours, or it may take minutes."
He says.

He begins with elementary shapes and colors, making them more specific as he works the painting.

Very nice stuff.

Huihan Lui

Huihan Liu studied at the Guangzhou Academy of Fine Art in China. Here is a three-hour demonstration he conducted at the Donner Ranch in New Mexico in 2002. These are stills from a home video, but the technique shows through, and there is ample narration by Ron Sanders.

Special thanks to Dierdre for providing the link
