MONDAY – Plein Air Paint/sketch out Cedar Island, Kingsville, Ontario

Spring and Fall rainy weather makes Plein Air a challenge, especially if you are working with paper. We have had to cancel this event twice. Hopefully we will get there again this year. If not we will certainly return in 2012.

WEATHER

At this time of year you can never truly predict what will happen. We go with the flow. Unless of course the sky is flowing before you even leave the house.

Here is a link to a good weather site that gives long-range, hourly, and even 15 min updates on the weather.

SUGGESTIONS ON WHAT TO BRING

The weather is getting more unpredictable, and it might get quite cool and windy on the lake shore, so make sure you layer. We suggest that you bring ear protection.

For your personal comfort:
Sunscreen
Bug Spray (they are biting)
Closed toe shoes with socks (bugs love your feet and ankles)
Wind breaker, jacket, sweater (layering)
Long sleeves
Long pants
Sun hat
Snack & Water

For the sake of art:
Camera
Folding chair
Plein Air easel
Plein air pochade box
Drawing board
Plein Air umbrella (type that clamps to your chair or screws into the ground)
Paint and drawing supplies of your choice

Your drawing supplies can be as little as a pencil, pad and sharpener or as elaborate as a full french easel box of oils and canvases. If you are just starting out, we suggest starting small.
