We love Plein Air painting. There is something so special about being out in the fresh air, alone or with other artists, seeking out a new location or vista to set up your gear. Ignore the wind, or snow, or burning sunshine while adding one more color, one more paint stroke as you dive deep into your painting. Enjoy the autumn leaves and a bubbling brook, the salty beach air... All of this is the essence of Plein Air Painting... on location...feeling one with nature. Join us!
PALS had a spectacular time at the wonderful Fire Island Light house. Some of us were there a few weeks ago with Wetpaints group and we also had artwork displayed in their show. I don't think I could ever get tired of painting here. Everywhere you turn is another scene waiting to be painted. Walking to the lighthouse is invigorating also. I enjoyed the bay side, and I had my easel set up, with my brand new umbrella, to protect myself from the sun. I was pleased with my painting and packing up, when a gust of wind toppled everything over and my painting was half covered in sand...only problem, it was the sky portion! Oh well, another reason to go back and paint again!...as if I need a reason!
