While most people think of painting in a studio or classroom, Mark Boyle loves to paint at the scene of which he is painting and in the moment to catch all of the exact colors. He explains that pictures never seem to show the true colors of what he sees in person.
Mark sometimes finds a backcountry spot he can drive to and paint a river or forest. Sometimes he packs in a smaller easel to capture a deep scene miles from his car. When he paints people fishing — or even the fish themselves — he is actually looking at them and painting them in the moment.
