I am starting a Plein Air painting group in the Charleston area. If you have never done any plein air painting and would like some support, consider joining us. Painting on location is very rewarding and a different experience than studio painting. We will be painting at a different location each time. I plan on scheduling urban, rural, and beach locations. The first paint outing will be on August 17th. If you would like to participate in this or future outings, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Today, I painted at Pinckney Park on James Island. Pinckney Park is a relatively new park with a walking trail leading to a marsh. Today, I set up on a slight hill and looking down on a bench near the edge of the marsh. I did an oil on a board covered with linen canvas. I was unable to finish the painting due to the rain starting to fall and some teen girls drove down the walkway on a golf cart and parked between the bench and my setup. I will probably add some finishing touches to the painting as I think it needs some strategically placed highlights.
