Last week I participating in the 12th Annual Laguna Beach Plein Air Painting Invitational at the Laguna Art Museum. A week ago, 50 artists descended on Laguna Beach to paint for a week. Most of the artists are from other states or other parts of California, but the areas we were all painting in are places I already do a lot of painting. The weather was a mixed bag, but the event was an interesting kind of deadline pressure.
The painting above was painted over several days, before the weather turned ugly later in the week.
I’ll have more to say about issues relating to landscape painting, plein air painting, and perceptual painting in a post coming soon.
It must have beeen exciting to be a part of that! I love the colors on the above painting.
