For months, for a variety of reasons, I have not painted. A friend encouraged me to tote a borrowed easel and a stool, and paint at one of the local beaches. I LOVED it! I felt totally comfortable painting among the “Light Chasers,” a local group of artists who enjoy painting outdoors. Yes, you need a bit of extra equipment but it is so worth getting up early, catching the brilliant light, and relishing the freedom of the outdoors. There were probably about 25 artists all painting different mediums at a variety of spots along this gorgeous, rustic beach in Venice, FL.
I am going to look for a lightweight, portable easel and stool and appreciate any suggestions you may have. I would like to have a shelf to hold my paints and water.
We stayed for 4 hours. I could have stayed ALL day!
I hope all of my WordPress friends are doing well. I look forward to catching up on everyone’s work!
