“I am a landscape artist painting in oils. Painting ‘en plein air’ allows me to achieve the best color and lighting of a scene at any time of the day or night. These field studies help me with natural color for larger paintings in my studio. Painting landscapes, seascapes, harbors and boats are my favorites. I am dedicated to the preservation of representational fine art.”– Robin Haskell
