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

I get the updates to the Oil Painter of America winners and this artist I had to share; TJ Cunningham won the award for best composition. His way of pulling you into his painting by every placement of shape, color, value and line was brilliant! Could be any river or creek in our area. A clear challenge to all of us to better our own compositions! Love to hear your comments and thoughts…
We had a great day painting the Yuba River! Let’s set up another day on the Yuba before it gets to hot!!
Hi everyone, I got this tip from Kim Kommando a free download for a photo editing software like Photoshop: GIMP program: https://www.gimp.org/ CNET gave it 4 stars and it’s been around since 1990’s. It might be worth a try since Photoshop now is only available to rent online.
Hi everyone this sounds great, short notice. I contacted Josie for more info. If your interested just email her. I’m hoping to make this one!
Sunday, April 29, 1:30-4:30 pm: Wolf Creek Paint Out. As part of Know Your Watershed Week, April 28- May 6, the Wolf Creek Community Alliance is hosting a plein aire painting and sketching event at a wonderful scenic overlook on Wolf Creek near the mouth of the Bear River. On land not normally accessible to the public, this is a majestic setting where the creek is wild and wooly with giant rock formations, abundant wildflowers, and waterfalls. There are many spots to paint from. It is a short ~7 minute hike on a narrow unpaved trail to the lookout. Bring all your own materials and easels. Pre-registration is required and space is limited. Suggested $10+ donation to Wolf Creek Community Alliance. Contact Josie Crawford at firstname.lastname@example.org for registration and parking details.
