Plein Air work is started outside and sometimes finished outside.  On the spot. 

 

Thinking romantic painter, beret with a gentle breeze as your muse?  Think again.  Think sunburn, black flies and mosquitoes in summer.   Midge blooms that stick to oil paint like crazy.  Wild animals, angry neighbors and farmers and dogs.  Think dogs again.  Winter, think frozen fingertips, wet boots, wind howling.  Paint freezing.  Year round, think clear color, shadows moving and an anxious painter trying to keep up.

I absolutely love it.

 

Les travaux Plein Air commencent à l'extérieur et parfois se terminent à l'extérieur. Sur place.

 

Vous pensez peintre romantique, béret avec une brise douce comme muse? Détrompez-vous. Pensez aux coups de soleil, aux mouches noires et aux moustiques en été. Fleurs de cécidomyie qui collent à la peinture à l'huile comme un fou. Animaux sauvages, voisins en colère et agriculteurs et chiens. Pensez à nouveau aux chiens. L'hiver, pensez aux doigts gelés, aux bottes mouillées, aux hurlements du vent. Gel de la peinture. Toute l'année, pensez aux couleurs claires, aux ombres qui bougent et à un peintre inquiet qui essaie de suivre.

 

 J'adore ça.
