Plein Air at the Pittock!

Steve Klieir's  watercolor class was invited to join him last week for an impromptu plein air session at the Pittock Mansion.  Sally Wickham explains, "We ignored the scaffolding around the facade (see Pittock Website explaining current renovations) and painted architectural form and fauna."  Wickham's watercolor is a light and breezy rendering of this Portland landmark.  Instructor, Steve Klieir, painted another version from a similar view point that captures the morning light.

Steve has taken his class on other plein air summer adventures like Ilwaco Wa. where they painted fishing vessels and cannery row.  His watercolor class resumes on Tuesday, September 10h in the upper class room.  A full listing of fall classes can be found here.  Check here for the current newsletter and remember you don't have to be a member to attend the monthly meetings!
   In case you missed it, Oregon Society of Artists will have a booth at Art in the Pearl.  We will be right at Park Place and Couch so stop by and see the non stop painting demonstrators all weekend long!
