Nocturnal Plein Air Painting

June 11th, 2019

The Plein Air Painters of Everett and Beyond are in our second year of Plein Air painting! The weather hasn't been cooperating until now even though we decided to begin in May instead of April like we did last year.

Last year, we overcame many hurdles such as improved packing of supplies, speedier set up and break down, and increased coping skills while painting surrounded by onlookers.

This year, we're focused on doing things that each of us has dreamed about but never took the initiative on our own. The first stop for me was to paint a particular bridge nearby that I drive through almost everyday. I will be working on that one in studio from on site photos as the support is 4' in height.

In July, we'll begin nocturnal painting. This means we'll need a relatively inexpensive, battery-operated clip-on lamp with great CRI's so that we can visually match the paint colors. One of our members found a full spectrum lamp that checks all of these marks. I've ordered it and will report on how it works out in July. Also, we have a trip planned in late July to the lavender fields of Camino Island--so much closer to us than Sequim.

So the Plein Air Painters of Everett and Beyond (PAPEB) are off to a slow start but so far the venues are epic and chosen by the members so that everyone can paint their dreams.

Beauty for Ashes

Beauty for Ashes

Above is an in-process photo of this Nature Morte still life, a still life that is in the process of dying yet much beauty remains. The bouquet was given to me at my plein air opening at Anthony's Woodfire Grill and was so beautiful I knew I'd have to add it to my collection.

"To grant to those who mourn in Zion—to give them a beautiful headdress instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, the garment of praise instead of a faint spirit." - Isaiah 61:

Solo Plein Air Exhibit at Anthonys

Solo Plein Air Exhibit at Anthonys

From April through October 2018, the Plein Air Painters of Everett and Beyond went to many parks throughout Everett, Washington (and a bit beyond). These are my pieces, 11 in total, plus a few extras, that will be shown at Anthony's Woodfire Grill at the Everett Marina during December 2018 through February 2019.

It has been the most wonderful adventure to paint en plein air with friends surrounded by magnificent scenery right here in our proverbial backyard. We painted through the fog and drizzle of April; the sunbreaks of May; the gorgeousness of June; the heat of July; the wildfire, smoke-filled skies of August; the wind of September; and the rain and chill of October.

The Plein Air Painters of Everett and Beyond will begin again next Spring and will capture even more sites in and around the Puget Sound.

Until then, please enjoy these plein air works from 2018. They are framed and available for sale at Anthony's Woodfire Grill, Everett Marina, Washington or to inquire, please click on the Contact button above.

Best,

Jeannie

Plein Air Painters of Everett and Beyond

I created the plein air group, Plein Air Painters of Everett and Beyond, for our local artists who, like me, may feel a bit intimidated about going off and painting on your own or having to deal with the public's eyes while in process. Most of us are comfortable in the seclusion of our studios. We need to get out there in within a group of artists at least to start, a place that is open yet off the beaten path to begin this journey. I posted about it on Meetup and met with resounding affirmation that this was indeed a much needed event, one that was free and held for the love of art and nature.

Our first Meetup will be in early spring and hopefully continue until fall. It could happen year-round for those that don't mind bundling up against the elements. We encourage those who want to paint elsewhere to break off into smaller groups to do their thing. It will be fantastic and this is only just the beginning. Just arrive with all of your kit and supplies and find a spot comfortable for you. Our goal is to get us out there to paint in comfort, whenever, wherever that may be.

Best,

Jeannie

On the Easel

My current work in process is near and dear to my heart. A photo taken by a cousin of her brother, a devout and faithful man, as he lay in bed at the end of his life. It is an iconic photo that had to be painted. I hope to complete the painting in a couple of weeks.

Best,

Jeannie

Painting Beach Rocks

April 27th, 2015

Painting Beach Rocks

Currently on the easel is a rock study that is nearing completion. I've never painted a scene solely made of rocks, but in this case it contains so many interesting dimensions that it continues to lure me in.

The rocks are sitting in wet sand, having been bandied about by the waves. When the water recedes, little sand trails are formed, which brings movement and contrast. The rocks have amazing yet subtle color. The sand was not just gray. In different areas, you could see either browns in the form of raw ochre or burnt umber mixed with the gray or blues. The moss on the stones was cool viridian and warm earth green, muted and pure in specs.

This painting captures a moment in time as with every wave, the sand trails change and the pebbles are again juxtaposed.

I'll post this in the gallery when completed at which time it will be available for sale.
