Challenges and Joys of Painting Outdoors
Submitted By Sachie Johns
The Fremont Art Association (FAA) is featuring an accomplished plein air artist, Therese LaChance Ely, as its Guest Artist on Wednesday, November 3, at the FAA Gallery. Ely will demonstrate a small landscape painting and present an informative talk regarding the safe handling of art materials, including but not limited to oil painting-it is safer than you may think!
The artist is an oil painter, but has worked in watercolor and collage. She enjoys painting outdoors at the beach or mountains where she finds inspiration. Ely has attended numerous workshops to enrich her art background. She has also frequently gone to Yosemite to participate in plein air classes, and studied high desert painting with Jean LeGassick.
Ely will also share her outdoor painting experiences with the attendees. The mosquitoes will be imaginary for this presentation.
