Nearly two dozen artists who woke up at dawn Friday to paint at Doc Bailey’s Farm during Umpqua Plein Air were not disappointed. The early morning light provided perfect illumination for several different landscape options for artists working in different mediums during the annual three-day competition. Nearly 60 artists from Oregon, Washington, California and Utah traveled to Douglas County for the chance to paint at different locations for prizes, including the North Umpqua River and Doc Bailey’s Farm. While the event concludes today, the Plein Air Exhibit will run through Oct. 24 at the Umpqua Valley Arts Association, 1624 W. Harvard Ave., Roseburg. Plein air is the art form advocated by French impressionists that is done outside, often in the diffuse light of a large, white umbrella.
