Plein Air painting is not the means to the end, it’s a journey. It’s how one starts the process, a tool that may end up as only a sketch or a study, it is a fragment of what a painting may become… a journey. Follow us on our journey as we explore the possibilities and stretch our creative souls. – NCPAP

Four of us took advantage of the nice cool weather to paint in Spenceville. The views were of beautiful oak trees and classic California golden hills. The painters were David, Jerry, Jan S, and Jane.
Seven painters came today to capture the apple trees in full bloom at Bierwagen’s.
This is a painting of the Charles Marsh Pond near Nevada City where seven of us went for a paint out. The town used water from this pond to fight fires in the 1800’s.
Six of us went to the Yuba river before all the weather hit.
Here are the challenges for the coming year. Happy painting!
