Plein Air Painting for the first time at Yosemite National Park! In this travel & art vlog, I’ll share two alla prima oil paintings I made at Yosemite, breathtaking mountain views, and relaxing hikes. I’m challenging myself to try new things to grow as an artist. Plein air painting was very daunting at first, but I think I learned a lot from our two days in Yosemite and it’s so rewarding to see my oil painting confidence grow! It’s an exhilarating feeling when the painting finally comes together and you have a physical momento of the beauty you spent hours looking at. Combining my love for travel, nature hikes, and painting was really an ideal artist’s vacation. Let me know if you enjoy this kind of vlog!
