We love to hear from the Plein Air Today community! The following is part of a series that spotlights an artist who loves painting outdoors. Today’s feature is on Pam Ayres.

My favorite place to plein air paint is DuBois Park in Jupiter, Florida. Aside from being only three miles from my house, there are numerous subjects to paint, such as the Jupiter Lighthouse, boaters on the turquoise waters of the Jupiter Inlet and Intracoastal waterway, the Jupiter Jetty, and people swimming, snorkeling, reading, sunbathing, fishing, and picnicking on the three beaches. I can also paint on ninety-degree days in the comfort of shade and the Atlantic breeze.

My Favorite Medium: I prefer oil paint to communicate the emotions of what I see because of the ease of mixing colors and the thick, juicy texture I can layer.

My Favorite Subject: The beach. The colors of the many beach umbrellas, the people, dogs, birds, kite surfers, the beautiful blue and turquoise water, and the amazing sunrises and sunsets are what excite and inspire me.
