With summer in full swing, I've been spending as much time as
possible outdoors, going to concerts and plays, walking from place to
place when I do my errands, and just finding every excuse for an
outdoor excursion. Plein air painting is another perk of the season.
There's something invigorating about stepping outside and sharing space
with your subject matter-breathing the same air, seeing the same light,
and having an in-the-moment experience with the landscape.
