Fran Mangino joined us live for a demonstration of her plein aire painting set up and experiences.

She explained her set up and showed us how she typically sets up in the field.

Fran then proceeded to paint for one hour and completed what she called a "quick draw" painting, typical of what she will do in the field and for outdoor painting competitions.

Fran brought several of her paintings created en plein aire for us to view.
