Sculptures by the Lakes,
Pallington, Near Dorchester in Dorset, DT2 8QU this is a beautiful location.
Organised by artist Stephen Yates,this pleinair festival was well attended.
I can tell you this was such a fun event, even though I know a few of us were a bit nervous how we were going to cope, being away from the comfort of our studios!
Plein Air means artists are expected to show up with their painting equipment and find a scene to paint in situ, and hopefully finish a picture or 2 between 10am and 5pm, we were so lucky with the weather, only having a couple of spots of rain in the afternoon.
There were around 20 artists dotted around the grounds and a great number of visitors came along and supported us. I love to chat to anyone interested in art so it was really interesting to get the imput.
People could buy work directly from the artists, I heard of 1 that had sold, but still getting the feedback about it all.
I think it was a successful day and we are all looking forward to the next one.
The next date for this is Saturday 9th September, so if you missed this one you have another chance to catch us in action.
