As a fan of George Rowlett I found my way to the website of the London Artspace Gallery some years ago. I want to point out to a marvelous online catalogue the gallery put up to feature the painter Ray Atkins. Plein air painting is alive still! Here is the link to Ray Atkins, The long view, have fun with looking and reading. Mr. Atkins is in his early seventies now. Anyone who has ever tried seriously his/her hands on painting plein air in oil colours knows what that means.
The urban landscape below, one of my oil paintings, was not painted on site, but from a photograph taken in the suburbs of the city of Dresden. The format is ca. 70X100 cm. In order to loosen up I turned the photograph by 180° and painted while seeing the subject upside down.
