Ongoing Watercolor Opportunities
Paint-outs are all day Saturday plein-air painting events happening as planned. These occasional trips afford an opportunity to paint on location and interact with other painters and members of WAS-H. Many of the trips are in and around the central part of Houston, and some are in out of town locations such as Galveston, Chappell Hill and other drives under 2 hours away. Paint-outs are a great way to sharpen painting from life skills, to meet other watercolorists and most of all to have fun!
Paint-outs will be held on the 3rd Saturday of each month in the Spring, usually from 9 am to 3 pm. We are hoping that by having a schedule posted it will reserve a spot on your calendar to join in. Check back here for any updates. As we have more details for a paint-out, including directions, it will be posted here. Contact Mary Rustay, our paint-out coordinator extraordinaire for more information.
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.
