Plein Air

Plein Air paintings are painted on location in varying weather and light conditions. They are attempts to quickly capture the changing light and colours at a particular moment in time and are generally small. I label these works with EPA, En Plein Air. This was a particularly popular style of painting used by the Impressionists.
