Plein air painting is not complicated. It is a very direct approach to making art. This is both it’s challenge and its charm.
Arrive with no preconceived
expectation, but do bring a
willingness to explore and use your imagination.
Respond to your surroundings. There is no time to fuss about, but do not hurry.
Search for expression with simple starts and sketches. This may represent
an entire mornings work.
Embrace a singular idea. Concentrate on expressing the essence of it to the fullest degree.
