Plein Air Paintings

Plein air is a French word (pronounced "ple-'nar") that literally is translated to mean open air. Plein air painting is defined as painting or drawing done outside, in the open air. These works are taken directly from nature, and infused with a feeling of how light impacts the landscape. Painting from life is a pursuit unlike any other painting technique. It challenges artists to concentrate completely on the information in front of them. They are primarily painted alla prima, or all in one session. The artist must use their senses to absorb it all - from sight to sound, from temperature to atmosphere (and bugs!), and then channel these feelings into their vision in paint on canvas or paper.
