Painting, Painting and more Painting!
The other artists were so incredibly talented!!! They worked in oils, acrylics, pastels, collage, watercolors and an installation (not plein air)! It was amazing, and I loved it. I got five paintings done and two started. The largest paintings I did were 12” x 16” but some of the artist worked on much larger canvas. The critiques were so helpful and I didn’t get my ego damaged. The food was good, the company was fantastic and Monteagle, TN is so beautiful. It did rain one day, and I worked on a color pencil inside one of the studios. Wednesday it was a little cold (56) and the wind was awful and cold. I would get into my paint, and it would dry before I could get it to the paper. I think the weather is what really challenges you. I can’t wait to go again.
I rode with an Artist who has Plein Air Painted in 16 countries. WOW! She was such an inspiration to me!!
Here are some quick pics I took of three of the paintings!
This is an adventure for me, something I've always wanted to do: to be a real Artist! So I rented a studio, lets see how it goes.
