As a Plein Air painter, Brian Murphy has committed himself to capturing on canvas the scenic environment throughout the United States, Europe and Asia. The same majestic landscapes and seascapes that inspired early California Plein Air painters such as: Edgar Payne, Hanson Puthuff and William Wendt provide audience to the artist’s unrestrained style. Further afield, extensive travels to exotic locales including: China, Singapore, Japan, Korea, Hawaii and Alaska have resulted in impressive collections of oil paintings, while fostering the artist’s creativity and global awareness.
I just returned from Easton, Maryland after spending the last 10 days participating in the 2015 Plein Air Easton event. I was honored to be included in a group of 56 competition artists from every corner of the US and beyond! It was a fantastic experience and wonderful meeting and painting with such a talented group of artists.
Here are a few images from my time on the Eastern Shore and several of my paintings.
