Painting Amid Chaos

One of the biggest challenges of plein-air painting is maintaining focus while unpredictable things happen around you. A park should be a calm, peaceful place to paint, right?

This excerpt from "Casein Painting in the Wild captures a little of the fun when we painting in Montreal last summer. (Link to watch video on YouTube)

Square Phillips, Montreal, casein, 5x8 inches

Painting in a quiet square - Caribbean carnival happens by! I wish I had challenges like that...

The closest example I can think of is the time I visited the Natural History Museum in London, for some dinosaur gallery sketching. I didn't fully appreciate the effect that the schools half-term would have on the queue for that gallery: I couldn't even get near it to be interrupted. Fortunately the fossil marine reptile gallery was there. It's a shame they get overlooked because they're 'not dinosaurs', but it does make for a quieter, less jostled session.
