Get ready to paint outdoors! In this workshop, we will start off by properly preparing a painting panel. While our panels are drying, we will go over some basic considerations for painting en plein air such as preparing various painting grounds, what supplies you need and how to carry them, traveling with art supplies & wet paintings, and how to paint in public places. Then you will practice setting up what you may already have and get valuable tips for modifying your kit to be more efficient. If you don’t have a plein air kit of any kind, don’t worry! You will be able to use a studio easel! Once set up, you will tone your panel and block in a simple painting. There! You’re ready to paint en plein air!
