Plein Air Workshop, Galveston Island, Texas

Great for those needing to learn the basics and those wanting to learn more and have fun doing it. I'll take you through my process of painting plein air. Then I will go around helping each individually. Location to be determined on the 4th, good chance will go to the beach but might do something different depends on weather etc. 

Try to pack light.

Bring the following:
Small sketchpad, pencil/pen
Oil paint, bring minimum of a white, yellow, red, blue. 
Odorless mineral spirits, for cleaning brushes
Brushes 3-4 total, hog hair or sable large brushes are better, 
approx. 1/2 wide, square tip, come to a good point, couple smaller brushes also.
Medium - refined linseed oil or what you use currently
2 panels or stretched canvas, any size under 11x14 is fine. 
Rag/Paper towels, couple plastic bags for trash
Disposable gloves, keep oil paint off hands
Hat, sunscreen, water, snack, chair if you need one
Umbrella for shading out bright light, but not absolute necessity

Some type of easel or pochade box with tripod, example pictured above. A weighted bag to anchor the easel or tripod helps or just a bag to put sand in. 

Date: October 4th Saturday 10am - 2pm
