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.

 

During the Spring, Summer and Fall months I hold Plein Classes in conjunction with the Scituate Arts Association. Here we discuss the use of color, value and compostion to capture the atmosphere of many scenes throughout Scituate.

Check the Scituate Arts Association website under the calendar listing www.scituateart.com for the latest schedules, or just call or e mail me.

Its a great way to start a Saturday (or Tuesday) morning.
