Rome Paint Out 2011

Down By The River

Andrea Smith of Atelier Canova is coordinating the Rome iteration of the "2011 Worldwide Paint Out," sponsored by the Plein Air Painters Organization, September 9–11 along the Tiber near the Ponte Sant' Angelo. It's a site I've worked at in the past on my own, and where I've set up groups of students. I've tackled it before in watercolor, so it'll be good to work there in oil this time. So many great artists–Valenciennes, Vernet, and especially Corot–have painted it on site and in the studio.

If you're in Rome this weekend, stop by and see the works in progress (each day after 4:30pm); I'll be there Saturday.

A presto,
