Jesus En Plein Air – 001

with No Comments

It seems that, while many contemporary plein air artists are attracted to city scenes with its remarkable architecture and animated population, they prefer not to be bothered by the later. So, some have devised ways to discourage interruption while they paint. One artist said he would put a tin cup labeled ‘tips’ near his easel and would nudge it with his foot toward anyone who might want to approach. Another artist said he would bring his pit bull dog with him and chain it to a leg of his easel. There’s also the ‘cough uncontrollably’ technique or the straight-forward message, ‘artist does not talk while painting’ sign scrawled in large letters on cardboard hung over their shoulders like a sandwich sign.
