A-Z Archive: P is for Plein Air

My husband paints outside in nature, his works are vivid and full of life! This is known as Plein Air painting. A painting done outside rather than in a studio. The term comes from the French en plein air, meaning ‘in the open air’. The Impressionists were particularly interested in the influence of changing light outdoors on color.

You can see some of his art here: http://www.turosshead.org/Artists/StuartWhitelaw.htm

  1. That looks like a painting that’s coming along well – can see the rocks in both the real and the paint 🙂 Don’t think your hubby would enjoy painting over here today – heavy showers and strong winds 😦 Nice idea for the challenge Christine
