Here is a sneak peak at a 6-page article I wrote for the next issue of PleinAir Magazine...

The article is about the recent painting trip I took to Spain and Morocco last fall, and it went to press yesterday. If you subscribe to the print version of PleinAir Magazine you will see it in your mailbox during the first week of February. If you are a digital subscriber the article will appear online a bit earlier. The article will also be included in PleinAir Magazine's extended online content on OutdoorPainter.com and a teaser will be dropped into an upcoming PleinAir Today's email blast. 

Needless to say I am thrilled about this and want to thank the editor and publisher for their interest and support.

With the generous permission of PleinAir Magazine you may read an advanced copy of the article by downloading this pdf. Please feel free to share it with your friends. If you like this article, and want to read more about plein air painting, consider subscribing to the magazine. It is a fine way to learn about the great plein air painters of the past, and the top contemporary outdoor painters of today...

I have already posted a few things about the trip last fall but the article contains content held back for the magazine. It focuses on how to minimize gear, and includes a few extra street sketches, a short how-to, and a little taste of the adventure.

Once the magazine ships I'll post some more about the trip. Specifically, about the time I spent in Sorolla's home and studio in Madrid. (see left) The experience was both exhilarating and humbling.

But until then, I hope you enjoy this sneak peak of the article. If it prompts a question just post it in the comment area below and I will be happy to respond.



Oh, and for any of you who are planning to attend the 2nd Annual Plein Air Convention & Expo in Monterey, California this April, I'll be presenting a demonstration for the attendees. Please stop and introduce yourself!

Thanks for the tips! I've been traveling around for art inspirations and I really need to maximize my luggage space.
