Time Lapse Video - EN PLEIN AIR Painting at the Matukituki River, New Zealand

This is a speeded up video of me painting a landscape, outdoors en plein air at the Matukituki River, New Zealand.

Painting outdoors is known as painting 'en plein air', a French term for painting outside. I love painting outdoors especially when I get to visit some epic locations within New Zealand.

In this speeded up video I painted a view along the Matukituki River, which is located near the town of Wanaka in the south island of New Zealand. This scene caught my eye as I was driving past as I loved the poplar and willow trees juxtaposed against the high mountains in the background. The cows drinking from the stream adds to the overall story of the scene.

Painting en plein air is a great way of really capturing the atmosphere and mystique of a location. For me, my plein air paintings are becoming like a diary of my life...but in paintings.

Whilst my studio paintings are detailed my plein air painting is much more loose gestural, a style that painting outdoors lends itself so well.

In this video I show you how to paint water, trees and mountains. The painting depicts a very familiar view in Queenstown, New Zealand and the view features willow trees growing on the foreshore of Lake Wakatipu, with The Remarkables Mountains in the background.

This painting was a commission and as the view is so well known in Queenstown, I was limited on being able to change the landscape to improve the composition. However I looked at some old 19th century paintings and got some composition ideas from them.

I painted this article t work in oils but you can also use acrylics as the principles of colour and tone are exactly the same.

In the video I will explain the following:

1. Composition
2. Colours and brushes
3. Blocking in the painting
4. Tips on painting water, trees and mountains
5. Adding final details

In the video I show you how to paint a seascape feature the coast of Wellington in New Zealand. This is just a small painting, but I love painting small art works and you can use them as colour studies to refer to if you are going to paint a large art work. I nearly always paint a small painting before doing a big one and sometimes a small painting is as far as it'll go but often i'll develop the idea and do a large painting.

In this video I discuss the idea behind the composition, I go over the colours and brushes I am using, I explain the principles behind the tonality of the painting and I explain how to mix some of the colours I am using. Also there are lots of tips for painting seascapes in general.

In this video I will show you my design process I use for creating a painting. I want to paint a seascape of the coast of Wellington in New Zealand, but before I get into the painting I need to plan and design it first.

I never just start a painting, I've had too many disasters with paintings where I didn't do any prior planning so I always at least do some pencil sketches but very often a colour study too.

Colour studies are small paintings in their own right and in this video I will show you my sketching process and a step by step tutorial on painting the small seascape colour study of the coast of Wellington.

In the video I will explain the following:

1. Composition
2. Pencil drawing technique
3. Colours and brushes
4. Painting technique
5. Colour mixing
6. Step by step painting tutorial

In this video I travelled went to Phuket, Thailand and I brought my paints with me. I wanted to paint a tropical beach and some palm trees I went to Kata Beach and I decided to paint the beach outdoors, known as painting 'en plein air'.

As well as studio painting I also love painting outdoors as I think its a great way of documenting the places I've been to...but in paintings. Outdoor painting known as painting 'en plein air' really captures the atmosphere and feeling of a place and it'll help you improve your painting skills.

It was a hot, sunny and hazy day and what with Thailand being in the tropics, it's very humid. I painted this tropical beach scene at Kata Beach, I'll show you how I painted it.

In this video I show you how to paint a coastal seascape featuring cliffs and the ocean around the south coast of Guernsey, a small island located in the English Channel.

In the video I will explain the following:

1. Composition
2. Colours and brushes
3. Blocking in the painting
4. Adding detail
5. Adding final details

I explain how to paint the cliffs and how to make the foliage on the cliffs recede in the distant landforms. I show you how to paint the sea and simplify the complexities of the moving water in a manner that still gives the appearance of a realistic ocean. I explain how to get the tonality of the painting correct, show you how to mix a few colours and much more.

A special thanks to my mother Wendy Pratt who gave me some footage of Icart Point as I forgot to film the area when I visited Guernsey last year!
