Plein air Aug.20th 2012 9:00 am Plaza Civica

The Oratorio Church from Plaza Civica

 We'll be meeting for plein air roughly near the Oratorio Church or in the Plaza Civica in front of the Church near the fountain. Just look around when you arrive and you'll find us setting up or hunting for scenes.
This will be weather permitting. We have had so much rain and or cloud it's hard to say what the weather might be like.I'm hoping we can get out for my last painting session before I leave for B.C.
So 9:00 am Monday Aug 20th bring your sketch pad for doing a preliminary quick thumbnail sketch ( small)
Bring a  view finder?? What's that?  Something small maybe 3" x 4" or 4" x 6" like a small frame for selecting your scene. I usually have extras of these if you don't have one.You want one that is roughly the same shape (ratio) as the canvas or panel you will be painting on. Eg. - If my panel is 9" x 12" then I can have a view finder with a 3" x 4" window cut out of it. Just thin cardboard works fine, - from cereal boxes or whatever. Don't forget your camera for reference photos. Hat , water, snack, etc. Go light, put out your paints on your pallette  ahead of time if your equipment allows for that. See you there.

Reminder : Next studio class Aug.30th 10am - for oils. Aug 31st - for w.c.s 10 am til 1pm
