Now appearing on Scituate Public Television
“Welcome to Let’s Paint Scituate, Plein Aire!” That’s the opening line I use in my new painting series with the Scituate Arts Association. In conjunction with the Scituate Educational Foundation.
This past november the first of a series of instructional videos were taped for broadcast featuring myself discussing and creating a painting on location. These will be broadcast on Scituate public Television to show not only Plein Aire painting instruction, but also broadcast the many aspects of the Scituate Arts Association.
Already filmed but awaiting editing is the Plein Air demonstration series, taped in numerous Scituate locations, to include the Glades at Baileys Causeway, the forest at the Ellis estate, The Ellis house itself, and the old piers at Driftway landing. Further tapings will include the continuation of the Plein Aire painting with Robert Beaulieu. In the Additioin filming has been created of the ongoing Portrait/Figure Drawing Session including Robert. A number of different artist were present for this taping as well, each explainning and discussing their individual approach to painting the model.. Most interesting is to view how three differnt artist approach and interpertation the same subject matater
Futher taping will include additional plein aire instruction with robert, as well as water color instruction with Mary Beth LoPiccolo. Numerous one off events sponsored by the Scituate Arts Association will also be recorded.
Lainey Laing, Scituate Arts Association Director of Education, has been the driving force of this endeavor as well as producer, while Seth Pfeiffer of SCTV has been generous in his support of providing air time, technical assistance as well as the equipment for taping. Linda Pedersen has been the videographer.
Times as yet for broadcast have not been set, so stayed tuned for further updates on broadcast times.. Who knows, I may be the next Bob Ross.
