In the fall of 2014, I devoted a semester to painting plein air landscapes.  It was somewhat of an experimental semester as I explored painting almost exclusively with a palette knife, practiced working with a limited palette, and worked with new paint/colors modeled after Richard Schmid’s palette.







Some books about painting landscapes that I read in the Fall of 2014 that I highly recommend:

  1. Carlson’s Guide to Landscape Painting by John F. Carlson
  1. Landscape Painting Inside & Out by Kevin MacPherson
  1. Edgar Payne’s Composition of Outdoor Painting by Ian Roberts
  1. Painting Better Landscapes: Specific Ways to Improve Your Oils by Margaret Kessler
  1. Landscape Painting: Essential Concepts and Techniques for Plein Air and Studio Practice by Mitchell Albala
  1. Richard Schmid Paints Landscapes by Richard Schmid
  1. Creating Impressionist Landscapes in Oil by Colley Whisson
