This gallery represents the paintings that Michael has painted on location. Michael's medium of choice for plein air painting is the water based medium, gouache. Gouache is a medium that Michael used frequently for visual development at Disney and other studios before computers took over as the medium of choice.  He still enjoys its versatile nature and ease for on location projects.  Many of his plein air paintings were done in under 2 hours as demos for his landscape painting classes.

This gallery has a sampling of Michael's paintings from the studio.  Michael paints in watercolor, gouache, acrylic and oil. For purchasing or licensing information please visit the  "Contact Us" menu.
