Plein Air Oil Painting, Packing, Tips & How To's with Paula Ensign
Sunday, July 8th, 2012
at 12 pm & 2 pm - FREE demos!

Want to paint in the Great Outdoors? Find out how and learn some great tips from Paula Ensign (current President of Plein Air Washington Artists) as she shares her knowledge and experience for Plein Air Painting!  This is a good demo for ALL painting mdediums.

Paula will bring in her entire plein air set up, and explain why, and how she uses her equipment. She will also cover additional considerations for painting outside - things like clean up supplies, sunblock, bug repellent, layered clothing. Paula will describe how she packs everything so she can travel lightly and be able to walk into locations. If there's time, she will set up a small canvas and get started on a painting.

Now that summer weather is here and it’s nice to spend some time outside rather than in the studio!
