Thanks to the wonders of the internet, we are all able to explore the galleries of the world and I especially like to study the work of plein air painters. Of the many hundreds, my favourite has to be Kevin Menck.
I find Kevin's work so inspiring. It is exactly what I aspire to in oil painting. There are many other wonderful painters out there whose work I adore too, but if I had to pick just one set of paintings to look at, then it would be Kevin's. Take a look at his BLOG and friend him on FaceBook.
Here's another artist who I very much admire. He's a huge fan of plein air painting and although I wasn't too sure about his palette when I first saw it, I have come to love it. I particularly like his pieces from a trip to Ireland. Have a look at his BLOG.
I could go on forever, but finally (for now) is another favourite of mine. His work is just amazing to me and again, he's a real outdoors kinda painter. See his BLOG.
It goes without saying that other sources of inspiration include the usual suspects, SEAGO, WESSON, CHAMBERLAIN and YARDLEY.
