There will be time for artists to explore and paint in other areas, with additional pre-festival workshops and activities – all designed to celebrate the art of painting outdoors.
Plein air painting is a French expression meaning “in the open air” and refers to the act of painting outdoors. The artist’s subject is in full view, with no photographic reference. It allows the artist to paint a moment in real time. Plein air artists capture the spirit and essence of a landscape or subject by incorporating natural light, colour and movement.
