3 Day Plein Air Workshop!

95 degrees and painting!
I had yet again, the privalege of working with some amazing people in my 3 day plein air painting class last week. I can't think of a better way to spend 3 days than with people who are willing, eager to learn, stretch their painting skills and just simply want to become better painters! :) This was one tough group, it was SO hot and humid! Each lasted until the end. In fact most were still painting when I went home. :) It was a great 3 days and fun to see the growth in each painter in such a short period of time.
We painted along the Wild and Scenic St Croix River just north of Stillwater MN, my stompin' grounds! It's a gorgeous place to paint and spend your time. Thanks to all you painters that took the time to be there. Happy Painting!

Hi Kami,
Looks like it was a lot of fun. I see we have the same pochade box. 95 degrees and wearing gloves?

Kami Polzin said...

Hi Erik, we had a good time out there! How do you like your easyL? I love mine. Perfect field box. The gloves. . :) I'm trying to be extra safe with the paint these days. Non Latex gloves seem to work pretty well for me. Happy Painting!

I like it very much, it's very light and easy to setup. About the gloves, you can't be to careful with these toxic paints right?
