Plein Air painting is relatively new to me and I have learned a great deal from the other artists in Susquehanna Valley Plein Air Painters, by reading and watching videos of other artists working, taking workshops and by trial and error. Watercolors is my medium of choice. I find them challenging. There is very little chance to make corrections. You just need to throw caution to the wind and have at it.
I have a Bachelors degree in Art Education from Kutztown University and have taken many graduate classes at various university and studied one summer in Europe. I spent 6 years teaching Art in Harrisburg (PA) School District and retired after 30 more years from teaching Northern York County School District (also in PA). Teaching Art was one of the most gratifying things I have done. It was a joy to watch my former students move on and sometimes become Art teachers or artists themselves. My own son has a Fine Arts degree and is a webdesigner and teacher.
