Ponderings of Spring and Plein Air Painting~
I started thinking of Spring the other day~ and a some things I wanted to do with the boys when the warmer weather is upon us... one thing we love to do is go outside and enjoy the nice weather and do some crafts and painting.. this year I am going to introduce the boys to Plein Air painting.. I would like to bring them right out in our back yard and set them up and get them painting... I think we will have lots of fun and experience some unique abilities they have shown that they have.
Here is a neat blog I found that has some information and videos pertaining to painting:
Hopefully, we will have an early Spring ~ I am looking forward to the warmer, longer days when we can walk around on the grass in our bare feet and hope to set up easels in special spots for just the right angle for some great pictures to paint.
