Plein Air Richmond

Carytown's sidewalks were littered with artists and easels on Saturday thanks to the Plein Air Richmond annual event. Artists set up on street corners and in the alleys painting the beautiful sites and buildings. The event is sponsored by Brazier Gallery which specializes in contemporary & impressionistic artwork. The pics above are just some of the finished works as I only had time to photograph a few and some artists were not set up at the time.

It's always a treat to see how other artists create so you can imagine I was thrilled to have the opportunity to see them in action. I discovered the event only a week ago and didn't have time to participate but you can be sure I'll be slinging with them next year.

Hope you enjoyed the post and that it inspires you to get out and paint your town & city. I'll sign off by sharing some pics of the artists in action. Enjoy!
