“Painting ‘en plein air’ is simply painting outdoors,” said Allie Snyder, the Plein Air Festival Coordinator for the ArtCenter. “The wet paintings are created from what the artist is looking at, and the paintings resonate with people because it reminds them of their favorite spots. It’s a snapshot of our area and a visual record of the history of this region.”

PLEIN    AIR    PAINT    EXCURSION   TO    SEDONA

 

 

Sedona, AZ

 

 

 

 

 

Sedona is an Arizona desert town near Flagstaff. It is noted for its mild climate and vibrant arts community and is surrounded by red-rock buttes, towering canyon walls and pine forests. Uptown Sedona is dense with shops, spas and art galleries. On the town’s outskirts, numerous trailheads access Red Rock State Park. We will be staying at a very comfortable hotel, the Arroyo Roble, with every room providing a private balcony with breathtaking views of the famous Red Rocks and two separate queen beds. The hotel is situated in walking distance from Uptown Sedona, which is the heart of town, with charming stores and galleries, restaurants and cafes.

 

 

 

 

Arroyo Roble Hotel

 

 

 

September 12th is your arrival day. You can take it easy, settle in, look around a little bit, and get organized for September 13th, our first painting day. Out of the 6 days on location we will paint 4 days. On painting days we will have breakfast at the hotel and then drive to a different picturesque location to capture the beautiful landscape on our canvases under Manon’s instruction. Demos, group critiques, and lots of individual instruction at your easel will greatly benefit your painting skills.

A $500 deposit and a signed copy of the fine print upon reservation will hold your spot. The remaining balance will be due on June 10th, 2019.

If you have any questions about the trip, please don’t hesitate to send Manon an email to manondesigns@comcast.net . If you’d like to check out Manon’s credentials you can do so by visiting her website ManonSander.com.

The FINE Print:

Cancellations for any reason will be subject to a $250 per person administrative fee. Deposits less the administrative fee are refundable if workshop sells out and someone takes your spot.

Purchasing travel insurance is mandatory to protect your investment. Let’s cross our fingers, but unforeseen circumstances do happen, and it’s necessary to be prepared.

There is a charge of $20 which includes hospitality suite. Artists may bring 1-2 guests at $10/per person. Because of the popularity of PAPB’s paint-out with critique that is run by Manny Jomok we decided to make it part of Plein Fun Fest. Registered Artists will meet at Old School Square at 9 AM and decide where to paint. Critique leaders will be available to offer assistance to those who are new to plein air. This Plein Air Paint-out allows artists the opportunity to enjoy not only painting but sharing their creativity with the public. To the viewers, this art form can be very exciting because it invites them into the creative process: the sight, sound, and even smell of the artists´ world. One of the best parts of plein air painting is the congeniality of artists. Paintings must be back by 12 noon to be part of the Silent Auction.

At 12 PM all will meet again at Old School Square Field House for an Artist Hospitality Suite. From there we will break into groups of no more than 10 for a shared art critique. And, as last year there will be a fabulous luncheon buffet for participating artists. After critique, artists will have time to tweek paintings if they wish, and frame them for hanging in the Silent Auction, but they must be completed and framed by 3-3:30. Framing is to take place on tables after table cloths are removed.

Paintings from this day may be part of the Silent Auction that concludes at the Saturday reception in the Ocean Breeze room. They are not part of the judging.

Sunday Paint the Beach for FUN

We had a great time last year painting the beach, so we are planning to do so again. Like before we will at the pavilion at the end of Atlantic Ave. There will be coffee and donuts. The city of Delray Beach does not require a permit for our paint-out that could have upwards of 50 plus plein air painters but asks us not to congregate in one place. Imagine the visual of all the plein air painters stretched out along the beach. NIrvana. This is just a painting for the shear joy of it as Delray Beach prohibits selling of anything at the beach.

The 4th Annual Plein Air Painting Festival is taking place this week in venues all over Palm Beach County and being centralized at the Lighthouse Art Center in Tequesta.  The Rickie Report introduces Eli Cedrone, one of the award winning juried artists.

Eli Cedrone, Award Winning, Nationally Recognized Plein Air Artist And Instructor

 

 

 

 

Eli Cedrone is a popular workshop instructor in the US and internationally. She has taught in Italy, Bermuda, Florida and the greater Boston area.  She tells The Rickie Report, “I’ve always been influenced by the power of images to express ideas and emotions. Painting is a process of discovery and decision making where disparate elements pull together until the image is clearly expressed. Ultimately my concerns are with the expressive qualities of light captured with paint.”

“Alehouse” by Eli Cedrone

PAINTING FROM LIFE – The Alla Prima Approach

 

 

“Impressionism, which is essentially the effect of light on color, demands that the artist pay careful attention to how he perceives the natural world. Creating notes of color is much like playing scales on the piano. Seeing correctly is critical to understanding and expressing how light creates color and how color conveys light.”

 

“BDA Railway Trail” by Eli Cedrone

 

 

Eli Cedrone is a nationally recognized artist living in the Boston area. A graduate of the School of Art & Design, (Suffolk University) in Boston, Cedrone studied in Florence, Italy, at the Museum of Fine Arts School and the Academy of Realist Art, Boston. She began her career in Bermuda, at Saatchi & Saatchi Advertising, followed by work as an art director and Illustrator in Laguna Beach, CA. She returned to Boston in 1996 and began her career as a professional artist and instructor.
