Hi! I'm Roos Schuring
an outdoor painter
living in the Netherlands
I paint Landscapes and Seascapes
'En Plein Air'
Like many artists, I started out
being a studio painter
but 17 years ago
I traded it all in
for outdoor painting.
I love to capture the swift passing moments of absolute beauty in Nature!
It changes everything.
Why does it change everything? Click here to read on...
Here’s what I think:
>When you are an outdoor painter your Style will develop WAY Faster and WAY Different.
>You’ll Become an Impressionist.
>Because You’ll be Capturing the Impression of the Moment. Or at least, you’ll try to. You’ll need Time and Practice. Because it really is a different way of Painting.
>You’ll Need to Be Faster!
>You’ll Need to Make Painting Desicions Faster, Mix Faster.
You’ll Need to Pay More attention to Movement, Color & Light, because you can’t work on a single painting for weeks on end.
It’s such a simple difference:
Putting the easel in front of your living subject,
but the Output Differences are Huge. It will Influence everything. Your Style. The way you handle your tools. How you Mix, the way you Perceive Color & Light.
And of course, it will change your End-Results.
>When you Persist during the inevitable first Difficulties, when you Proceed in this Outdoor Journey, the Results can be Life Changing, as it was for me.
I sucked at my first outdoor attempts!
The Trick is to Not let go.
As all abilities ALWAYS grow with Practice:
Practice, Practice, Practice!
You’ll See Your Development GO UP!
If you are new in this: Start with Outdoor Painting as soon as you can & you’ll be having Greater Landscape Results in a year.

I teach about Outdoor Painting in live classes at the Beach in Holland. Though most of you won't be jumping on a plane so easily, I started to create online video painting training 5 years ago.
