Ready to hit the road and paint but not sure how to pack efficiently and safely? Want to make sure you’ll have what you need to take those travel sketches to studio paintings when you return? Here’s the map you need to figure out what to take on your next painting adventure plus important tips to help you gather the information you’ll need to take back home with you. Jane Barton has traveled the world with her gear and will share her secrets for getting there and getting home. All media.

In the tradition of the early artists of the West, Jane Barton loves to capture the vanishing scene: old cars in Cuba, snow bound aspens in Colorado, colorful Italian fishing boats, sunsets on the Catalina Mountains near her home in Arizona. Painting constantly “en plein air” was the key to finding the information she needed to move from her early career as an award winning illustrator and graphic designer to her beautiful studio work. She studied at the American Academy of Art in Chicago, has a B.A. from Boston University and an M.A. in Illustration from Syracuse University School of Visual Arts.

Barton has lived in Arizona for over 40 years and loves the desert landscape but lately travel has taken her to Greece, Italy and Iceland and a recent collection celebrates the beauty and movement of the water she studied there. Her travel sketchbooks inspired The Travelers’ Creative Sketchbook and Illustrated Letters classes, which she teaches in Arizona, Illinois and Washington.

Jane is a member of the Salmagundi Club, Oil Painters of America, American Impressionist Society, Laguna Plein Air Painters and a Signature member of both the American Women Artists and Arizona Plein Air Painters. www.janebartonstudio.com
