AN INVITATION TO PAINT EN PLEIN AIR
The Emerald Coast Plein Air Painters meet to paint the landscape outdoors somewhere in Okaloosa or Walton County in Northwest Florida every Wednesday morning. Interested artists arrive around 8:00 AM, paint or sketch for a few hours, and then gather on site at 11:00 AM for “show-and-tell” where they share what challenged them that day. Afterwards, most go to lunch at a restaurant nearby. There are no dues or fees, and no attendance taken – artists just show up with their supplies and equipment and sketch or paint the subject of their choosing.
Plein air painting is considered one of the quickest ways to build skill in composition and color mixing and application.
Visit facebook.com/emeraldcoastpleinairpainters to see recent activity and the announcement of the next Wednesday morning painting location, posted each Monday.
