Julie Blanchard often paints outdoors (en plein air) using strong color and a variety of techniques to capture the mood and feeling of the day. She allows nature to take a hand in the completed work. Whether it is sand and bugs or ice crystals in winter she makes use of the environment to help capture the moment.
