After several months of hiatus, the Plein Air blog
Our new Artist Daily editor, Courtney Jordan, and I have worked out a
schedule to get the Plein Air blog back on track, and I’m excited to
coverage of the artists, events, exhibitions, tools and tips, and
issues that matter most to you as painters and interpreters of nature.
I don’t think it would be a stretch to say that plein air
painting is something artists of all styles, subject matter, and
enjoy. Throughout history numerous landscape approaches have emerged
tandem with or in opposition to the stylistic movements that were being
pioneered indoors by figure, portrait, or still life painters. Whether
plein air paintings were used as preparatory sketches for larger studio
considered finished works in their own right, working outdoors from
some point in the process was, and continues to be, of supreme
importance to a
great many landscape painters.
