Here is a quick video I took on one of my plein air painting trips in Montenegro. Thinking about the abstract character of the scene before you paint makes a big difference to how it turns out. You might find it interesting how I explored the abstract ideas that came to me in this particular scene.
Here is the plein air painting I completed on site in Montenegro.

I love your work and watching you paint and how you approach doing a painting. The end result makes it all worthwhile. I would love to come to Italy again and soak up some more knowledge and even just watch you paint. That trip was magical and most enjoyable. I hope Covid has slowed down a lot there just like it’s starting to do here. Beautiful work, Barry!!
