Artists throughout the ages have painted on location in order to capture the essence of a subject and the lighting conditions. Plein Air is a French term that artists have adopted to indicate that a painting is done outdoors, on location. Plein Air paintings are by necessity looser and less representational than studio work. Generally a Plein Air painting is completed within a set time frame, as light and conditions change so quickly. My Plein Air work usually takes between 2 and 4 hours to complete.
