It’s time to start painting En Plein Air. We are getting some warm days with Spring abounding and colors coming out of hiding, how can we resist?
Our first plein air competition is right around the corner taking place the first weekend in May. The competition part is a small fraction of the total experience. What really matters is the excitement of being outdoors and sharing the environment with fellow artists. We keep hearing it’s the journey that counts. Truly this is the case for us working toward our common goal of painting.
When one says a competition right away there’s a pinch of tightness, but this should not be the case. There is freedom in being outdoors and soaking in our surroundings. If we let it, the creative juices will flow. Enjoy yourselves and you’ll be surprised how that shows in your work.
