Do you paint en plein air? I have done it once at a festival, wrote about it my book and have thought about it ever since. Which to me is a sign, I probably want to go back to it.
En plein air painting means to paint outside. The concept is that you paint what you see while outside in nature: the ocean, mountains, meadows, gardens and more. You bring a portable easel, art supplies and any other equipment you might need. Much like camping for the artist. Pack in, pack out. I watch a variety of YouTubers that specialize in plein air painting and there is something so relaxing about…watching. Maybe not quite as relaxing as doing!
But I still dream. Especially during this covid time. I continue to studio paint a lot but there is a calling or craving to get outside and switch up my practice. Stay tuned please.
Any new art practices or mediums you’re trying or contemplating that have come out of the stay at home order? Curious.
Stay healthy everyone! xo
