Plein Air – Sunshine Coast THURSDAY paint outs

pa box_01 lores


Join me for informal PAINT OUTS – working on location in great settings on the lower Sunshine Coast.

THURSDAYS  10am – 2pm

A “paint out”  is simply an opportunity for like-minded artists to gather, sketch, paint on location and hang out together. You can work near each other and chat – or on your own and just connect if you feel inclined. It is nice to gather at the day’s end, eat lunch, compare notes and review the collective results.

Its not a public event – but there may be curious passerbys. I won’t be teaching – but you are welcome to watch and ask questions. If the weather is crappy we head for cover or go for coffee.

I will be posting locations and maps for meet-ups BELOW. Bookmark this page for


too busy for any plein air these days – or the weather wasn’t cooperating.
