Preparing For Plein Aire

If you've been wanting to try plein aire painting but didn't know where to start, our August general meeting was the place to be. For those who could not attend or for those that did and want to double check their notes, Dave Beebe has prepared a presentation (in pdf format so everyone can see it) that captures what was discussed.

Joan Garcia and Pat Beebe both talked about and demonstrated what they pack to paint "out in the air". Dave Beebe gave a brief talk about how the same planning for painting applies to photography in the field. You can't carry all your gear all the time. 

As a bonus, during a recent sailing trip between Venice and Athens (Italy to Greece, not Florida to Georgia) Dave and Pat met 2 professional plein aire painters and they shared their insights in the presentation as well.
