I'm in the throws of finishing three illustrations before I head down to Spring City for their plein air event. I love painting in both genres, illustration and plein air. The old illustrators painted plein air. They were painters. I realize that causes heartburn in some circles :) I digress...The plein air helps my illustrations to be more believable; just like life figure painting. It all helps and all a must-(for my development anyway). To paraphrase Robert Henri, he mentioned that the model is the best teacher. All the information is there. I feel that way about nature as well. I'm venturing out to Nature U.
Right now I'm off to teach a couple of indoor classes... I'll sleep next week...
