One of the woman on this France trip is from Olympia and she sent me a link to the "Plein Air Painters of WA," click the image below to see their website:
They plan to be in Walla Walla June 6-10 but it looks like they haven't got a plan yet as to where and when on each day. I would like to head to Walla Walla on Friday to draw and paint with them if anyone else wants to head over. I think it would be fun to get to know painters from other areas - it looks like they've got a schedule all over the state for the remainder of the year. I don't think I'll bring all my oil painting stuff - just my regular sketching stuff, though I may bring a larger tablet of paper to do some nicer, bigger finished pieces. I'd like to attempt to turn this loose sketching/washes into a fine art and not just a comic illustration because I am truly enjoying doing it and it is a whole lot less stressful than the formal oil painting!
