Plein Air Painting

Carolyn Jarvis Painting in a Lavender Field
Carolyn Jarvis Painting in a Lavender Field

This is a photo of me plein air painting on a beautiful, sunny day last June in a lavender field at Matanzas Winery in Santa Rosa, California. I’m using my old, small Yarka Russian easel that is a wooden box with 3 aluminum legs attached so no tripod is required. This easel is no longer made.

Kee Beach, Kauai – Ocean Oil Painting

Kee Beach - ocean oil painting
Kee Beach – 20″x24″ oil

I painted Kee Beach, an ocean oil painting, from a photo I took while hiking on the Kalalau Trail, Kauai, Hawaii Islands. I think this is one of the best hikes in the world. This view, overlooking Kee Beach, is near the beginning of the hike. The hiking trail continues through tropical vegetation on the Napali coast.
