|We believe that the best painting comes by way of personal discovery and the same can be said of the best travel.|

Plein air is the term used to describe painting that is done outdoors, “in the open air”. Plein air painters work directly from nature, seeking to capture the varied, shifting effects of light and atmosphere on the landscape. Although some people associate plein air painting with Impressionism, plein air painting does not conform to any one style, subject, approach, or philosophy. This has been true historically, and it is still true today.
