Cape Ann Plein Air Quick Draw — pat morss

This week the annual Cape Ann Plein Air Festival is in full swing. The weather so far has been challenging – cold and windy. The opening event on Sunday was the Quick Draw, held at Essex County Greenbelt’s Allyn Cox Reservation. Competitors had two hours to complete their paintings, followed by a half hour to frame and submit them for judging and for sale.

No restrictions on creativity, as the sign notes
The Great Marsh took center stage
Well along at 1-1/2 hours
Coffee to warm the hands
Small was a good approach to the windy conditions
This artist’s easel blew over – now in restoration mode
Low to the ground also worked well
The perfect compact outdoor kit
