Painting with 900 Artists!

We were up before the sun today. The Plein Air Convention opened with Art Marketing Bootcamp followed by some fantastic demos and presentations. I have pages of notes with lots af great ideas! 

It was an action packed morning and after lunch we were ready to get outside to paint.  Today's paintout was on the grounds of the hotel. The views were wonderful! Marsha backed the car right up to the best spot and I painted in the shade of the car! 

We were early do got some advice from Grorge  Strickland and Bruce Gomez. Soon artists arrived and they were set up everywhere! It was so much fun! I decided to do small studies and I painted  four of them. 

We ended the day on a great note with a nice dinner with a wonderful fellow pastelist and faculty member Tom Chistopher. Stay tuned to more from the 5th Annual Plein Air Convention!

Wow! What a day! Love your small studies, that's the way to get the most out of an outdoor session. So beautiful. The cactus is great, not your usual subject and so well painted. Love that cliff!
