WAS-H offers organized outdoor painting opportunities with our Weekday Plein Air group.
Weekday Plein Air is a group that meets at pre-selected spots in Houston on Thursday mornings. Paint for two hours and then convene with the group for a gentle half hour critique and sharing opportunity. Register for this event each season to receive emails with locations and updates. Then come when you can, it is an informal group meant to share the commardarie of painting "en plein air!"
What do I Bring to a Paint Out?
The short answer is whatever you need to paint. Here is a suggested list to get you started on packing your plein-air painting kit.
TIP: Take lots of photos for reference, especially as lighting changes. The photos may be as important as the painting as they allow you to complete the paint- ing at home if necessary, or start over with lots of fresh material for future paintings.
