ABOUT US

A few years ago four professional plein-air painters from the Boothbay region were at an opening. (Corinne McIntyre, Roger Milinowski and Ron and Monique Parry). Ron said, "Since we all usually paint by ourselves why don't we go out every Wednesday and paint together". And so the "Plein Air Painters of Maine" was born. What started out with just four of us now has ten Chapters with over 600 members. At any given time in the summer there can be 14 to 20 people painting. In the winter there may only be two or three hearty folk. But the interest has never subsided. The comraderie, exchange of ideas and just plain fellowship with other painters is so rewarding.

The Boothbay Region, in fact, all of Maine, has a wealth of subject matter to paint. The sea, the coastal rocks, endless skies, seabirds, lobster boats, docks, fish houses...etc. It is so beautiful. A painters paradise.

PAPME MEMBER BJÖRN RUNQUIST TO HOLD THREE WORKSHOPS


BJÖRN RUNQUIST
PLEIN AIR PAINTING 
SUMMER WORKSHOPS
ST GEORGE MAINE

#1 JULY, 3 days, 8,9,10  $350 (limited to 8 people)
#2 AUGUST 5 days, 19-23, W/ TOLLEF RUNQUIST (8/21-23). $500 (limited to 10 people)
#3  SEPT 3 days, 9,10,11 $350 (limited to 8 people)

The workshops will build on the foundations of plein-air painting, focusing on the dynamics of building a painting, composition, color and the techniques of alla prima painting.  We will start with short studies focusing on quick establishment of composition and proceed with a variety of exercises to improve plein-air techniques and lots of individual attention. Particular emphasis will be on capturing a sense of light and its use as a compositional element.  Locations for painting will include the village of Clark Island by the Craignair Inn, Port Clyde, Tenants Harbor, Marshall Point, South Thomaston and surrounding areas.
