I have been painting on and off for quite some time now and find that Plein Air Painting is sometimes the most challenging, but also has been one of the most rewarding. I do studio painting and commissions in oils and acrylics, love both mediums. I find that Plein Air Painting sharpens my senses and skill to put paint on the panel where I want it to be, with more speed and accuracy while having fun doing it!
Head instagator of the Wisconsin Plein Air Painters Association I love to paint outdoors and help others to learn about painting outdoors. I am also involved in creating events showcasing plein air painting.
My name is Michael Pintar. I’m an award winning plein air artist residing in the Waukesha Wisconsin area. While I work full time in an office, I try to get outside and paint once a weekend throughout the year. I’m always interested in exploring new scenery and painting with other artists, not matter what their skill level is. Interested in painting en plein air? Contact me.
