plein air painting

The elements are always changing when you are outside painting from life. It is a wonderful experience to be painting the world around us. I love the challenge!

En Plein Air is a French Term, that means painting outside in the open air. Did you know that this was a main source of practice and inspiration by many of the famous impressionist painters of the 19th century? These famous Artists included Monet, Van Gogh, and Degas.
