Painting A Nocturne With The ArtEscape Compact Lighting System

Patrick Saunders​ painted his fifth ever nocturne of Tuvalu Home Laguna Beach​ last night at the Laguna Plein Air Painters Association​'s 20th Annual Laguna Beach Plein Air Invitational Nocturne Paint Out.

He used an ArtEscape Compact Lighting System designed by Douglas Woodman for the first time, and liked it so much he bought one. With the ArtEscape, you can choose between warm and cool light, or a mix of both, allowing you to better control the light on your painting, and see its colors.

Thanks for making a great light system Doug, and for letting Patrick try it. PRK eye surgery years ago left Patrick unable to see very well at night, but this light makes it possible for Patrick to not only paint nocturnes, but actually start really enjoying painting nocturnes.

Fatman's Loop Trail - Flagstaff, Arizona

The Fatman's Loop Trail in Flagstaff, Arizona, a relatively gentle hike, is worth it not just for the scenery, but the wonderful smell of pine needles.
