En Plein Air
En plein air is French for outdoors… plein air painting is the act of painting outdoors. As a pianist practices scales, a painter benefits much from the discipline of heading outdoors to paint. One learns to work fast and free, to observe and see the big compositional shapes. The light changes fast and the bugs can bite, both great motivations to keep it simple. The major benefit I have found though is the glorious meditative aspect of standing and observing a scene for an hour or so. When else do we ever do that?! It’s so precious to carve out this time to get filled up in creation.
