Plein Air...

I love watching artists doing their thing outdoors.  While I spend many hours everyday in my studio, I rarely go outside to create art except for my photography, of course.

There were quite a few painters out on the boardwalk.  It was very interesting to see how each artist set up their easel and paints.

Original photo taken just outside of Charleston SC.

I believe it must take alot of courage to be out in public while creating... Love this shot. :)

I always marvel at artists and their creations. It's simply amazing to me.

Tamar SB said...

I agree, with Nancy! Love the shot too - makes me curious what they were creating!

I love this photo. In fact, just about any time I can see a photo of art supplies I swoon. Go figure!

Kia said...

Beautiful photo, Pat. I, too, love watching artists doing their thing outdoors and spent a lot of time watching the painters in Montmartre during my weekend in Paris.

What a great shot...something beautiful about paint brushes and what they create at the hands of an artist! Happy Friday

I love this shot. I don't know why but i have such an attraction to paintbrushes. I don't even paint but I just love the way paintbrushes look and even more so when they are well used.

Not being an artist myself, it is fascinating the way they organize and how very talented that they are.

Nina said...

Wow, that looks really cool - I admire the artists working in the streets and open air - such a wonderful capture ... telling a story!

Pauline said...

I admire anyone who does anything in public. Love the composition of your photo, would have liked to see what was created with those brushes.

Lovely photo!

I never did much painting outside either, except in a watercolor journal that I kept and carried a small metal box of colors and a couple brushes to go with it... Thank you for coming by sharing your creative photography on the Weekly Top Shot, #109!

Oh I could never be "creative" in "public" - I would be too nervous.

What a beautiful photograph Pat!

I've already visited, I know, but I wanted to swing by and say thanks for linking to Super Sunday Sync!

Prairie Jill said...

Great shot! I love all the wood, and the splashes of colour on the paintbrush handles.

Lui said...

It is exciting to watch a painter at work. I rarely paint outdoors except when I do workshops and I hardly use oil ;-)

Pride In Photos said...

I have to agree with Nancy, I don't think I could create if people were watching me...this photos is wonderful.
