What is Plein Air Painting?

If the situation allows, I will always choose to paint plein air! The term plein air (pronounced plen-air) is a French term for open air and refers to the act of painting outdoors with the artist's subject in full view. Painting in plein air allows all of my senses to be actively engaged in capturing the light, color, and atmosphere of a scene.
