Plein air painting - Pawley's Island, South Carolina

Pawley's Island plein air painting Workshop

I spent a week discovering some of Pawley's Island and surrounding areas.
Being the south, of course, I talked fast and had an 'accent'...so I learned to slow it down and enjoy the weather, the people, the low country culture and the food.
We had a nice lunch at LaRocco's outdoor patio, right on the water.
And before leaving for home, sampled the seafood buffet at Captain George's in Myrtle Beach.

Visited Myrtle Beach last winter and planned a workshop on my followup visit.
Many people to thank - David and Sharon for the great accomodations and breakfasts with 'bacon'...Mary Frances from Pen Dragon Art Store in Pawleys, for her sponsorship help, M. Graham for the sponsorship,Marilyn for allowing me to paint on her property - Ruth, Deane, Amy, Angela, Kathy, Lucy for your enthusiasm and openness to new concepts - it was fun getting to know you all...

The video highlights just a small time frame of the week long visit. Stepped off the plane to a 30 degree drop in temp and drizzle, with snow to follow...

The legend of Alice Belin Flagg as one of the ghosts of the area has many variations, as most legends tend to do. I've included it, as a 'ceremony' took place right next to us, as we painted on Sunday afternoon.
