En Plein Air

Our blossoming tree was at it’s peak just recently and allowed our youngest of budding artists an opportunity to experience plein air painting.

Plein air painting is about leaving the four walls behind and experiencing painting and drawing in the landscape. Among other French Impressionists, Renoir, Degas, Matisse and notably Monet who is considered a founder of this style of painting made this century’s old practice into an art form.

The impressionists want of painting light and its short lived, constant changing qualities together with the invention of the box or field easel allowed artists the freedom to paint “en plein air,” a French expression meaning “in the open air.”

Who could resist the invitation that was so finely presented to them… To do some painting en plein air!
