Plein Air Convention & Expo

I was fortunate to attend the Plein Air Convention & Expo in Monterey, California as 1 of 3 representatives of The Canadian Society Of Painters In Watercolour.  This clip shows the highlights of the week.  It was a fabulous experience, motivating and inspiring.



These are my plein air paintings from Monterey.  I found out that in these plein air events the definition of a plein air painting is one started on site and either finished on site or finished later without the use of photographs.  By that definition some of these are not true plein air work but by my definition that’s OK.
