And just to clarify due to a couple of PM inquiries... for this swap I am going by this definition...

"According to the Great Lakes Plein Air Painters Association, a “true plein air painting is always completed from beginning to end on site with the subject matter before the artist,”

Hope this helps clear up the questions

I think it's great. I would feel too intimidated to paint in a group. Especially landscapes an the like.

I miss my college watercolor class days. We would go somewhere like a park, and sit and paint for hours, many times go back the next class time to finish up. I miss being around other creatives. It helps to talk about each others painting as you work.
I was at one of my watercolor classes when I found out 9/11 happened, so that painting is etched in my memory.

Have fun at your art week nightowl!

Here is day two of my en plein air adventure. I did not participate in today's quick paint event. It was in the city's cathedral district. I wasn't that looking foreward to being in the city and painting buildings. I figured there was no chance that I would come anywheres close to wining a prize so if I wasn't going to enjoy the location I may as well skip it. So, I went down to the river to focus on doing a painting to submit for showing at the museum. I plant to participate in the remaining quick paints regardless of my skill because they are to be held in locations that are much more appealing to me. I still need to cut the top and probably some of the right side off with my paper cutter.

Not sure why my painting went sideways up there. I didn't paint it that way - LOL. There are a lot of things wrong with mine as far as the geography and the structure of the bridge and I am tempted to fix it up a bit. The cross braces on the far side are missing, and the bridge going left looks like it is over land not water. The time was up and I panicked and threw a bunch of green in that area. I do think I'm getting a bit better with getting more color variation and contrast in there. Not good, but better.

I see you used the same type of painters tape as I did Photopam. I finally got smart and taped my paper down to my board. I have never really done that before, but I've been having wind problems the last couple days so I decided to give it a try. Works great.

I do think I prefer painting the smaller size, like ATC size or postcard size. The larger paintings that I've done for the first time during the festival are a lot harder for me I think.

I bet it's interesting seeing such different paintings of the same subject.

I've always taped my paper down, because that's what we were taught to do in class.

I have the opposite problem you have. I am so use to larger work on site, to go small, and deciding what detail to add is a bit harder for me. I want to get out and do a couple more, buts it's hot, muggy, and buggy already. maybe I'll get up with the sun and paint a sunrise...

I wish I had more time to send in, because we are going to Wyoming in August, and I can't wait to paint en plein air there! Maybe I'll host a swap then?!

Hi Robin59, I'm happy to add you and welcome lurker Daphne75

I hope it's cooler where you are than where I am. The heat pretty much beat me up again today. I took advantage of the free admission the festival registration provided me and toured the local children's zoo and art museum today. I was going to try painting one of the penguins but it began to pour rain so I came home. Then later I painted a "dud" at the quick paint event. It was held at a nature preserve and I'm a nature kind of gal so I thought I'd do pretty well. Nope. It was literally a hot mess. Not even going to show it. Tomorrow is another day to try again.

Giant score today at the local thrift shop. Brand new Arches 300 lb watercolor block (12 sheets - 9 x 12 size) for only $3! Woo hoo. I'll have to take this next week to the sunflower painting outing.

Great photos and plein air work everyone.

RhonaPaints, it's been raining there and sufferingly hot here (and it's going to get hotter - up to 110 they predict. I'll trade you the rain for the heat).
