Chilly day doesn’t deter “Paint Out” artists

2 min read

Artists braved nippy weather on Friday in the Bay Area to participate in “Plein Air Paint Out,” an event that continues on Saturday at various locations in League City.

Artists bundled up to stay warm at Watergate Yachting Center in Clear Lake Shores as they started in the morning on works depicting boats and other sights.

Plein air” is a French term that means “out of doors” and refers to the practice of painting an entire picture while outside. One of the advantages of painting this way is that it helps the artist better capture changing details of weather and light.

The two-day event involves the city of League City, the Outdoor Painters Society and the Bay Area Painting Society, and students and art teachers from Clear Creek ISD were expected to participate.

On Saturday, artists were expected to be busy at various locations throughout League City such as the historic district, the marina at South Shore Harbour and the trails at Countryside Park. One site they will be working is League Park, 512 Second St., from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Completed art will be available for purchase throughout the day.
