Okay what is Plein Aire? Wikipedia describes it thusly " is a French expression which means "in the open air," and is particularly used to describe the act of painting outdoors. I'm pushing the definition a little, a number of these paintings are studio creations of outdoor scenes, but many are done right on location "alla Prima.." meaning done in complete, on site. This Ala Prima lends itself to much more spontanity and expression. Although maybe a little looser, it captures an essence of painting right on site. On the bottom of this page are vacation sketches done on location for you to enjoy. The top row are a few acrylics, the remainder, water color and pen.

 

 

This Winter semester, I will be teaching, with covaide regulations, a foundation in Plein Aire Painting classes (as well as still life and portraits) with the South Shore Art Center.

I hope you can join me on this rewarding painting experience.
