I enjoy painting outdoors, so most of my paintings and sketches are at least started out on location.
Painting outdoors from life gives another dimension to a landscape, by putting the artist out in the landscape that they are painting, more senses come into play and the artwork will consequently not be as flat as a painting copied from a photograph.

About Tracy Algar
I am a plein air painter, which means that I paint outdoors, on location. I am inspired by the magnificence of nature and strive to capture the essence of a landscape in a small format.
My paintings are small enough to carry, but big enough to inspire a sense of place.
Come and explore the world with me, one small painting at a time.
