Plein Air Digital Painting of our Little Shack…

…at the beach in Puntarenas, Costa Rica. Lots of rain, (as it is the Rainy Season). But I managed a few hours between showers to do this Digital Plein Air of the house. Artistic license here, the place is probably 20' higher up the hill than I painted it – thought it should've been there, anyway. Also, the beach is a pebble and rock-strewn thing. Sand is just easier to paint.

Impressionism. Digitally painted in style of oils on canvas. Orig. size appx. 6×12" at 200 ppi.

About Skylar

When I was 13, I was given a paint-by-number for xmas. This was a new thing, and I found I liked painting - but the numbered "squares" were too tedious. I turned it over, painted a scene I was looking at, and have painted ever since. I studied in Europe as well as Hawaii, New Mexico, & California. For many years, I had my own Graphic Art business, where I did everything from designing & lay-out to Art Directing publications & newspapers. I moved to Houston in the early 90's to "Semi-retire". Well, that didn't work out at first, and I found myself doing Murals and Commissioned paintings in high-end homes for several years. Now I really am retired, and paint just what I like (Except for commissions, which I still like to do). Among those who have collected my work: L.A. Times Corp., Beverly Hills Post Group,Dolly Parton, Dionne Warwick, Sarah Vaughn, Carmen McRae, Robert S. Woods, Bank of America, Calif., Northgate Forest CC,Houston, The Gulbergs, Houston, Dr.Robt.Bell, Houston, My Web Site - .  E_M add is , or, , or
