New series… Plein Aire Painters… Michael J. Lynch

is one of my favorite painters whose work I see regularly at in Denver on Delaware St. His work is lively and painterly and most often he makes his own frames. His use of clouds to show the roundness of the earth is great. On his own website please check out his small plein aire sketches. His use of color and composition with less than 4 main shapes is to be admired.

He was born in Colorado in 1950 and after studied in chicago but was frustrated at the modern way of painting and thinking that didn’t value realism at all. After moving back to Denver he became part of the Painting Group the Denver 7.

Take some inspiration and get out there and try painting a sunset scene. Soon the change of seasons will be upon us and you will be stuck inside your studio most days. Get out and enjoy while you can!

Keep learning!
