En Plein Aire
12 x12 inches
Acrylic on Canvas
"Humble yourself by trying a new palette or technique",
Robert and Sara Genn said. It was quite humbling indeed,
just to paint outdoors.
It was a way to achieve a personal goal that I set, before
registering for this workshop. The immediate connection
with nature is why I continue to leave the comfort of my
studio and paint outdoors. Do I do this everyday? No.
I was in awe of the other workshop
painters, who painted under the blazing sun, everyday.
Grateful to escape the heat, I holed up in a small structure,
partially constructed of driftwood. It seemed to make the
"en plein aire" experience more enjoyable.
