Learning PLEIN AIR

We Help Beginner Plein Air Painters Make Beautiful Paintings

If You Want To Learn Plein Air Painting, You Care About One Thing: CAN I DO THIS?.


Restoring Function. Decreasing Pain. 


Stretching. Balance.


Strong. Fit. Healthy.

A Proven 4 Step Painting Process.

I understand what it’s like to want to make beautiful plein air landscape paintings but instead, feel overwhelmed and unsure how to do it.

Plein air painting is unlike any other creative process. You are fighting against time and the outdoor elements.

I have a step by step method and a proven system that will simplify the plein air process and help you become a better plein air painter.

It’s the same process handed down by legendary Impressionist Sergei Bongart to my teacher, Don Sahli.

This method of Russian Impressionism teaches you how to simplify the  complex landscape, and “see it” in a way that will enable you to confidently paint bold colorful brushstrokes and complete a beautiful painting in a short periood of time before the light changes.

You are in the right place and we are here to help.
