Plein Air Paint Out, San Juan Island
Today's paint out event was held at Dodie Gann's beautiful farm. From 1pm to 3pm artists set up with easels, canvases, and paints to create a painting in 2 hours time. Immediately after, the paintings were brought to the podium and auctioned off, as a benefit to San Juan Preservation Trust. I managed to take a few shots of my painting in progress, the initial sketch, my ORANGE underpainting, the final version, and a close up of the paint strokes, my impasto paint. Finally, a photograph of several neighboring artists in the thick of it. Claudia Mills is the new owner of this plein air oil,"the Farm over the Hill"
