The Joy of Plein Air Painting

What is Plein Air Painting?  Well, for me it is very similar to an On-the-Spot painting.  But the difference is there's no theme.  If you are a traveller and you are fond of seeing beautiful spots, you can start exploring the joy of doing Plein air painting.

Taking travel photos for me is easy now.  But I wanted to challenge myself by doing Plein air painting.  I would just need more time to spend doing it and more spaces on my luggage to bring my tools for it.

What are the joys of Plein Air painting?  For me, it's the challenges of capturing the light, the mood of the day, and the colors that constantly change.  When you look at the open fields, the golden colors of sunsets, light's reflection on rice paddies, and the changing hues of trees creates a romantic feeling within me.  I feel elated by just holding my brushes and dipping its hair on paints.  A dabble on the canvas erases worries and the joy is communicated through your works.

Plein Air painting does not require rules.  Sometimes, the boundaries of four-walls of our offices cause stress. But with painting on open-air, it gives you that feeling of freedom.  Your fear would slowly banish then you will realize that you can create beautiful things with your eyes and hands.

I am still learning and searching for my mark in painting.  We are lucky that the web is rich on references.  Let me share with you this free e-book I found in Amazon.  Let us study together about Plein air painting.  Click on it.  Don't worry, it's free.

The following video is from the YouTube Chanel of Create Content Connect and it features the Filipino Artist, who are expats in Saudi Arabia.  They are called the Hagod Visual Artists.
