Jeanne Powell

An Artist’s Journey. Traveling on international workshops introduced me to the joy of plein air painting. My imagination responded to the challenge to study light, color, and design in the landscape.  I have always loved international travel. Plein air painting has enriched my travel experience far beyond what my camera could, and it has enhanced the beauty and variety of the Maryland landscape I live in.


I work in oil and in gouache.  My work is representational but expressionistic, seeking to capture the feeling of the cityscapes and natural landscapes.  Plein-air experience includes a dozen years in classes plus more than twenty international workshops. I take advantage of local workshops and enjoy participating in a variety of plein-air paint-outs.  I join other artist friends on our own painting trips to near and far places. My paintings have been accepted in many juried shows and have won numerous awards, including Best in Show.
