I encourage my students to consider the act of plein air painting as more than painting out of doors with the breezes and fresh air. The act of painting outside provides the opportunity for artists to use all five senses to soak up the experience. What we bring back….. the sketches, drawn and painted, the photo reference and the memories can contribute to a richer experience back in the studio.
I would like to express special thanks to Randy and Susan Allison for the generous use of their property. The weather was exquisite and gorgeous sweeping panoramas and bucolic bliss made for a memorable event.
