Watercolor painting en plein air
“Rigging for an Afternoon Sail” (watercolor, 11 x 8.8 in.) by Barbara Tapp, featured in the PleinAir Podcast with Eric Rhoads, Episode 101

Transitioning from architectural illustration to plein air painting wasn’t easy for Barbara Tapp, who is featured in this week’s PleinAir Podcast with Eric Rhoads. She explains that it took seven years of experimenting and pushing herself through reading, meeting other artists, joining an art club, and painting en plein air with others to truly become a painter. Only then was she able to let go of painting everything completely accurately and to let her imagination come in to play.

Today Tapp is a Signature Member of California Plein Air Painters, a Juried Member of Watercolor West An International Transparent Watercolor Society, an Associate Member of California Art Club, and an Associate Member of California Watercolor Association.

This week’s PleinAir Podcast includes a Marketing Minute with Eric Rhoads! Listen as he answers artist questions about posting sold paintings, works in progress, and political opinions on social media, as well as when it’s the right time to raise the prices on your paintings.
