2018 Plano Plein Air Event Feb. 16 & 17

Plano Art Association, in conjunction with The Outdoor Painters Society, Southwest Watercolor Society and ArtCentre of Plano, will be conducting an exciting two-day plein air event in Downtown Plano and nearby areas.

Up to 100 artists are expected to participate from all over North Texas. The artists will focus on the interesting subject matter of the Historic Downtown area and the Heritage Farmstead venue.
They will register on Friday, February 16, at the ArtCentre of Plano. From there, they will fan out and choose a spot with an interesting local subject and begin painting. The artists will choose their own media including oil, watercolor, pastels and various dry drawing materials. On Friday evening, the works of the day will be brought to the ArtCentre with works from Saturday to be added for an artistic “show and tell.”On Saturday, the same procedure will be followed, culminating with a gathering at the ArtCentre where a judge will select works for a month-long ArtCentre exhibition. Cash prizes will be awarded the winning entries at a reception on Saturday, February 24.

Participation as a painter in the event is limited to members of Plano Art Association, Outdoor Painters Society and Southwest Watercolor Society. Those wishing to participate and are not members of one of these organizations can easily join Plano Art Association on the organization’s website: www.planoartassociaton.org.

The reception will be open to the public on Saturday afternoon, February 24 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the ArtCentre of Plano,  902 E 16th Street Plano, TX 75074.

This workshop will focus on the use of watercolor to paint exciting impressionistic paintings. You paint from photographs and will explore the use of light and shadow to create interesting compositions and achieve dynamic results.
We will examine the fundamentals of watercolor painting to assure that all students are familiar with the techniques. Daily discussions and application of the principles and elements of design will be woven into your painting experience.
Each day you will engage in exercises that will solidify the content that you are working on and spend time viewing other artists work. We will discuss the methods and the impact that these artists achieve using their techniques.
Michael will demonstrate his approach to creating  landscapes and show you several high-speed video demonstrations.
And you will have ample time to successfully complete your own paintings.
Michael welcomes novice and advanced students and tailors the experience to individual needs.
From Herb Reed, past president of Southwestern Watercolor Society.
“For the past dozen years I have facilitated and/or participated in more than 20 watercolor workshops, as an officer of SWS and as a principal in a local gallery.  Michael’s recent workshop was one of the top few that “really made a difference” in the way that I approach painting.  Take it . . . you will learn about design and composition, techniques, and hints on taking reference photos — all for turning out terrific watercolors.”
