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!
Plein air painting seems like a serene way to spend a summer afternoon. You can see artists at work around Long Island -- but why not join them? The Plein Air Limner Society meets every week at a different outdoor spot for members to paint, sketch or photograph -- all skill levels welcome ($25 annual membership, 631-241-3749, palspleinair.blogspot.com).
