En plein air is a French expression which means “in the open air.”  In my studio I can control the lighting, but outdoor light conditions constantly change so I have to work rapidly. My plein air studies are typically completed in 2 – 3 hours.

You can have a look at some of the paintings I’ve done outdoors by using the drop down menu under Plein Air at the top of this website, or by clicking on the links below.
