Plein air painting day meeting with artists in Cambridge - February 2012

A short video of a plein air society meeting held in Cambridge UK on the 27th February 2012 with several other artists from around the country.
Posted: Monday 27th February 2012

It was a pleasure to paint outdoors with several artists from round the UK in my home town of Cambridge in the UK. We met up at 10am and got painting after coffee and chat. I suppose we were out there for several hours. I managed a small oil using my pochade box, an oil pastel contre-jour sketch of crocuses, and a fast sketch in gouache on "The Backs" of punts on the river. I'll blog these as well

I think everyone had a good time and the weather was kind - cold but sunny.

Here's the video:
