Plein Air Painting

Discovered on this overcast day above Carmel River State Beach, a Plein Air Artist named Tim.  His easel was set up at McGinnis Bench, which overlooks the surf, a special place where I sometimes bring a bottle of wine and sit with my dogs.  It’s moments like these that confirm why I live at the beach.  plein air:Tim  IMG_4729

Every year during the Carmel Art Festival in May, Plein Air artists may be seen on the bluffs and cliffs competing for awards. Check out the “Concierge” menu on Coastal Lifestyles for upcoming events in Carmel, Monterey and Pebble Beach for 2015, so you too can plan your stay around a special moment.
