En plein air? Oui!
Since the 19th century, people have marvelled at plein air paintings. Indeed, Monet's 'Haystack', Singer Sargent's 'Carnation, Lily, Lily, Rose' and Constable's 'Stoke-by-Nayland' are all masterpieces that have influenced Impressionism as we know it today.
With the invention of the cheeky little paint tube, plein air painters have been experimenting with outdoor light and color for almost two centuries now.
Plein air artworks are generally considered to be of landscapes, however, as 'en plein air' literally means 'outside' in English, artworks of this type can include cityscapes and people, too. Creating a finished piece in the wind or damp, as well as trying to avoid pesky insects getting stuck in the paint is truly a feat in itself. Ooh-la-la!
