—Oh the joys and despairs of paintng en plein air!

Gorgeous weather, birds singing, flowers blooming, gentle breeze wafting through the trees... 

Also buzzing instects, rain, wind, equipment failure, chatty visitors.

These are all part of the plein air experience. But you don't HAVE to suffer for your art (and I'll show you how)! 

I will discuss some of the stories of experiences I have had, tips and reasons why this something all landscape artists should at least try. I will show my equipment setup, and answer any and all questions. 

If you can't make the class, you can still enjoy the stories and harrowing experiences that go along with plein air painting. If you CAN make the class, I will be showing my set up and discussing how I decide what to paint!
