Mary in the Garden

by Carl Bretzke

I love how Carl Bretzke combines his incredible Plein Air painting skill with a touch of whimsy. Whether it’s a strangely anthropomorphic car hiding in the background or a dog gingerly passing through, you can always spot a Bretzke.

He created a great instructional video on how to paint nocturnes,  you can watch a hour-long preview of it here.
