The Pastel Society of Australia encourages all Members to get involved in Paintout Days. It is a wonderful opportunity to seek inspiration with fellow Pastel Artists and get out of the
confines of the studio to work En Plein Air.
Paintout Days are announced at the monthly General Meetings in Brisbane, Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast, however if you are a Country Member and know other Society Members in your area, you are encouraged to connect and take your pastels out into the great outdoors. Paintout Day information will also be posted on the website Noticeboard.
Chosen locations usually contain amenities. It is recommended that Artists bring a packed lunch with beverages and travel light. Pack a bag or backpack with basic sketching materials (enough pastels to make colour notes, quarter sheet pastel papers and a drawing board). Other items include a folding chair, easel and camera plus sun and insect protection.
