Painting 'Plein Air' Watercolors and Creating Visual Memories


Written on December 26, 2011 at 2:34 am, by

Why plein air (open air) paint? If you have never taken the time to sit and stare at where a ridge meets the sky or how a branch attaches to the trunk of a tree, or how a hillside reflects in a lake, I encourage you to put all fear aside and go for it. If you do you could discover that the experience of careful observation is satisfying in itself and that it is aided by trying to record it as a visual memory.
