CCAA’s Demo Artist, Monday, May 21 *: Elizabeth Ingebretsen

How Could You Not Be a Plein Air Painter Living Here?

Our guest artist, Elizabeth Ingebretsen will speak about her trips overseas painting plein air watercolors. She will briefly review her travel gear, painting philosophy for success, and precede to a demonstration painting in watercolor. She will paint fresh flowers — the closest thing, she thinks, to a plein air painting experience indoors in the evening.

Born in Oakland, Elizabeth is from an early California family, however, she frequently leaves the state. Her travels have taught her important lessons, “I was born under a star, and am blessed to continue to live in our beautiful, bountiful state.

Elizabeth earned a degree in Applied Art and Design from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo. Working as a Graphic Designer, she moved to Marketing Communications, directing the development of product packaging and related collateral materials for leading Silicon Valley corporations. The fast-paced environment was exhilarating, until it became exhausting. Painting has been a journey back to health, and balance, for her.

Winning numerous regional awards for her watercolors, Elizabeth also paints in oils.
