Painting En Plein Air
Plein air painting is about learning to see. This means understanding the principles of painting and using them to make a personal statement.
The basic principles are drawing, composition, color, value, and a thorough knowledge of your subject.
"The challenge of painting out of doors, directly from nature, should be a joyous experience. Nature, with all her whims and vagaries of moods and weather, creates so many beautiful moments — both visual and emotional — that we are sometimes overwhelmed with material. We must work towards developing a better understanding of what makes a good composition and how to translate our vision onto canvas using color, tone and value." ~ David P. Curtis
