Plein Air Tips #6 Promote Yourself!

Part of the fun in painting on location is talking to the people who stop to watch. Unless I am at a timed event where concentration is important, I don't mind talking to the curious who have questions. I've seen funny t-shirts that answer the sometimes silly questions we get. But artist Becky Joy had a better idea. Why not promote yourself by wearing a t-shirt with your own art. She suggests putting your website and QR code on the back so people who don't want to interrupt can still learn about you by looking you up! See Becky's great video on promotion HERE
Make sure you have some business cards handy. I always seem to forget and usually have some requests so be sure to pack some cards in your bag.
