Plein air painting is about leaving the four walls of your studio behind and experiencing painting and drawing in the landscape. The practice goes back for centuries but was truly made into an art form by the French Impressionists. Their desire to paint light and its changing, ephemeral qualities, coupled with the creation of transportable paint tubes and the box easel—the precursor to the plein air easels of today—allowed artists the freedom to paint “en plein air,” which is the French expression for “in the open air.”
The plein air painting group meet up regulary in various locations around the North Fingal area. Meet ups are posted up to two to three times a week on a what's app platform. This information includes times and locations, with people giving an immediate indication of their ability to attend.
