Texas artist Randall Cogburn was lucky to remain terrestrial recently when his setup on a jetty on Galveston Island was threatened by weather rough enough to rile up the ocean, but not rough enough to scare off this plein air painter.
Cooper Dragonette spent a lovely morning painting a small plein air study of the stormy coastline at Pond Cove in Cape Elizabeth, Maine. The heavy rains ended, the seas calmed down, and the big waves subsided so he could finish his painting. Unfortunately, the storm got even with him when he returned home.
As a busy professional artist and mother of two small children, Californian Kim VanDerHoek knows that any attempt to paint during a family outing can lead to extreme conditions. Thatâ€™s certainly what happened during a recent trip to Big Bear Lake.
Derek Daniells likes to paint along the narrow streets of Stony Stratford in England. Normally, the location is reasonably quiet, but at times the snow, cold temperatures, and splashes from passing â€ślorriesâ€ť force him to take refuge in the local pub.
