When: June 16th at 11:00 am (PST).

Plein Air Made Simpler

Painting outdoors, while an amazing experience, comes with some very specific challenges.  The rewards are great, but figuring out a workable approach with your gear and painting technique can be a little overwhelming, especially if you are new to it.   In this short presentation, Gaye Adams will share information about getting geared up, and then she will demonstrate her approach to Plein air in a real-time demo.  A photo reference will be provided for participants to follow along.

Artist Bio:

Gaye Adams has been drawing and painting for as long as she can remember.  And it has always brought her a sense of satisfaction and joy.

Gaye’s paintings are not difficult to understand; they are merely an exploration of that which brings her joy and makes her heart skip a beat.  That is the experience she wishes to share with those who view her paintings – to stir the imagination and quicken the spirit and transport them to a wild and interesting place.

The single most compelling aspect of art-making for Gaye is creating the illusion of light with mere paint which she considers challenging and engaging at the same time.

In addition to painting, Gaye enjoys the lovely connections cultivated while sharing her passion for plein air, and even takes students on her plein air adventures!  Check out her website and social media to learn more.  Gaye’s work can also be found at the following galleries: Canada House, Banff,  Adele Campbell Fine Art, Whistler
