Patrick Saunders Fine Arts Painting Workshop Demonstration - Indiana Workshop - Day Five

We have officially retired this photo reference series from the Patrick Saunders Fine Arts demonstration painting rotation as of today. Patrick lets the artists in his workshops choose the images for his demos from photos, and scenes of Neah Bay, Washington have been such a popular choice that Patrick has painted them a number of times now.

We actually don't ever get tired of these scenes ourselves, because the whole Makah Reservation area is of the most beautiful places in the country, in our opinion, and it brings back great memories, but it's time now for some new boats reference. Good thing we're headed to Easton soon!

Olmsted Plein Air Invitational - Swan House Exterior Painting

The 2019 Olmsted Plein Air Invitational artists were invited to paint on the grounds of the Atlanta History Center this week.

While the front of the iconic Swan House is the more famous facade, Patrick Saunders chose to paint the back of the house due to the beautiful dappled light raking across it in the early morning hours. 

The light spots move so quickly, you just have to choose which ones to paint and when.

Olmsted Plein Air Invitational - Swan House Dining Room Painting

This week, for the Olmsted Plein Air Invitational, Patrick Saunders was allowed to paint in the dining room of the world famous Swan House at the Atlanta History Center (shout out to all The Hunger Games fans).

Donald Sutherland did not make an appearance, but the docents were incredibly gracious and encouraging as Patrick tried to capture the sense of this beautiful room. This is actually the first chandelier Patrick has ever painted. It's definitely a case of having to forget what you know and only painting what you see.

Some define plein air painting very narrowly as only working outdoors, but Patrick'a definition of plein air is obviously broader, and includes painting from life outside the studio. Plein air literally means in the open air, and the term came about when paints became available in portable tubes, allowing artists to venture outside the studio and paint on location, both indoors and outside.

Seagrapes Plein Air Painting - 2019 Lighthouse ArtCenter Plein Air Festival

Sea grape trees are everywhere in Jupiter, Florida, but at The Nature Conservancy Blowing Rocks Preserve, they've grown together into a picturesque tunnel and sea wall that you can walk through all along the beach. 

While the tunnel is amazing, the colors and variety in the leaves themselves are also beautiful. I decided to focus in on the details rather than the entire scene. Kimberly posted a great photo of the path on our Saunders Fine Arts Facebook page.

This painting is available today at the Lighthouse ArtCenter in Tequesta, Florida.
