Monterey, CA APRIL 13-17, 2015

Jean Haines
PleinAir magazine is pleased to announce that United Kingdom artist Jean Haines will headline the 4th Annual Plein Air Convention & Expo, to be held April 13-17, 2015.

Haines is considered the finest watercolor artist in the UK and one of the best in the world. She is among the most sought-after instructors for those studying watercolor; her workshops are always sold out with waiting lists.

"This is a rare appearance, and we are very fortunate to be able to feature Jean Haines at the Plein Air Convention," PleinAir magazine Publisher B. Eric Rhoads said. "Jean is heavily booked and rarely does an appearance such as this. Watercolor painting has become an important part of the convention, and we are honored to have Jean headline our watercolor program this year. Chances are our watercolor stage will sell out once word of her appearance gets out." 

Grand National Sensation by Jean Haines

Haines will do a live watercolor demonstration during the convention and will be available throughout the week to work with watercolor artists during the convention's outdoor painting sessions. The Plein Air Convention offers a stage devoted to watercolor painting and a full agenda of watercolor painters, to be announced. 

Magical Catch by Jean Haines

Jean Haines is a watercolorist whose experience and inspiration derive from all over the globe. She began her art career as a little girl in Wales, drawing with oversized crayons given to her by her grandmother. As an adult, living in such places as Dubai and Hong Kong has profoundly influenced Jean's art, exposing her to everything from different lights to the varied ways in which art is influenced by culture. Today, Jean is well known around the world as a top watercolorist, and is a member of the Society of Women Artists.
