Plein-Air Sale Spotlight

"West Fork of the Madison 2"  10" X 12"  Oil on Canvas Panel

This was the second painting I completed on a smoky/hazy day on the Madison River, here in Montana. The first was a 9"X12" down by the riverbank, the further I got away from the river the hazier it became. The only panel I had left was a 10"X12" and still looking up the river the haze was starting to clear up due to light wind. I was able to see more color in the Dogwood and Willows. While out in the field I look for different compositions than what I would compose in the studio. I don't sale many of my plein-air work due to the fact that I use them for reference for my studio work and they hold too many unique memories that I like to revisit on occasion.  
Again, I appreciate all the positive and enthusiastic support for this sale!

"For a Limited Time Only"

Here's your chance to own a Plein-Air painting by Dennis Boyd!

I don't usually sell my field studies, because these are the paintings I use for my reference
for larger studio paintings. These are really personal paintings and each have a unique story behind them. I try not to have any preconceived ideas or compositions in mind when I head out into the field. I hike around for hours looking and studying my subject matter and how the light effects the surrounding areas. These twelve paintings comprise different seasons and unique geographic elements of the Montana outdoors that I experience and love.
This Sale Begins Friday April 10th and Ends Friday May 1st

Summer Pasture  Oil  14" X 18"  Plein Air

I painted this piece in one of my favorite locations here in Montana
this past Summer. I really pushed the color while on location and the addition
of  Phthalo Blue to my pallet has really assisted my Greens.

Swimming Through The Colors of Fall

"Swimming Through The Colors of Fall"  Oil  20" X 24"
I've been working on and off this piece for a while.
I found this pair of Chinese Geese while out at a private pond I was invited to this past October. I couldn't resist sketching and photographing them as they swam through the fallen leaves.

Shore Line Two Step

 "Shore Line Two Step" Oil on linen 18" X 24"

This will be the painting that I'm submitting to the Salon International at the
Greenhouse Gallery. The Canada Goose is so common that people really don't take
the time to examine all the color that these birds can reflect. I really enjoyed painting
the effects of direct light as well as the reflected light on these geese. I also took a little
more time experimenting with different techniques while maintaining my refusal to use
a smaller brush than a #5 Signet Filbert.
