On September 10th from 8:30 a.m until 11:30 a.m, Northeast Florida-based landscape painters will meet to capture the scenic views at Six Mile Landing in Guana River State Park. Six Mile Landing is located at 539 Ponte Vedra Blvd in Ponte Vedra Beach, FL.
Some of the area’s most talented outdoor painters will bring their paint boxes, easels and sketchbooks. This remarkable 14th annual event, Global Paint-Out, is happening with the support of International Plein Air Painters (IPAP).
Plein air artists seek the quality of natural light and atmosphere outdoors. Their art work is in direct response to the beauty they find in nature. They use a variety of media, from oils, water-based paints, pastels or graphite. The public will be able to join in the fun by watching individual artists work through the morning near the boat ramp.
Event organizer, Linda Richichi, says there is a joy about painting outdoors and this is a chance for people to see professional artists at work, developing their paintings in response to the beauty in nature.
Plein air painting developed in France in the mid 19th century and is becoming increasingly popular. Last year’s event drew artists from all over the Globe. Many new plein air painting groups were formed directly from this event.
