As three painters worked on their pieces at Baby Beach, people passing by stopped to watch. A few commented, but most smiled and continued their morning walk.

The three artists are part of a group called Plein Air Mission, named for the group starting their “en plein air” painting outings at the Mission San Juan Capistrano.

They travel through South Orange County, usually meeting once a week, to paint different scenes that they find. Last week, before the rain came in, the group was on the pier near the Ocean Institute while the visiting vessels were in town.

“I enjoy going out on the point,” said David Evans, a Lake Forest resident.

On Tuesday, they each picked different points from Baby Beach to focus on.

The group can vary from two to 15 people, but larger groups are typical only during the warmer months, Evans said.

To see where the group is going next, visit their Facebook page by searching “PAM Painters. Plein Air Mission.”
