    2018 Cloud Appreciation Online Contest

      

    PAPNM members are invited to participate in the Cloud Appreciation Online Contest, summer 2018.  Members can submit one painting executed between June 22 and Sept 10, with a Cloud theme from any location of the country.  Because the summer monsoon months are known for their dramatic skies - these paintings will be a snapshot of how the sky/clouds appear in various locations within New Mexico and beyond. The 1-week voting period will follow.

    Also during this time period Tom Blazer will be conducting a cloud/sky demo on TBD. Tom's demonstration will discuss key tips for painting clouds and sky.  I'm sure this demo will be a great inspiration for those who will attend.


    General Requirements: 

    • Only PAPNM members can participate in the "Cloud Appreciation" contest.
    • The painting must be original, painted 80% plein air in the summer of 2018.
    • Image must be properly sized and named, as described in the Requirements and Instructions page.
