Jes and I have planned our 1st travel date for photo shoot and plein air painting on July 28th. We are going to start with the waterfront areas of Eastern Nebraska.
This is a year long project folks. One that Jes & I are very passionate & dedicated to. The amount of time, travel and preparation for each piece is part of the creative process to capture not only the image on canvas but the light through use of color and the energy of the area.
I’m excited Folks! Our river front day adventure of taking reference photos and setting up at 2 different locations to do some plein air painting is quickly approaching. We’ve narrowed down a list of small community libraries in the areas we will be painting.
If you are not familiar with plein air painting- it mean painting outdoors. We’ve chosen 2 time frames- 1 early morning light and 1 early evening light to paint. That will give us time to travel between locations and set up again. Mid day light washes out everything and not very interesting to paint. So stat tuned as Jes and I continue to do what we love “Paint” and share the hope, inspiration and beauty by donating the paintings to Nebraska Libraries.
