Get ready to paint en plein air and begin to experience the wealth of light and colour that only the great outdoors can provide!
Painting outdoors, or en plein air, provides the artist with an inspirational experience like no other, but it also presents many challenges. The constant flux of light and temperamental weather conditions (especially in Ireland!) means that we need to be well-prepared before venturing outside.
Good planning and preparation are essential if you wish to get the most out of your outdoor painting experience, as you need to be able to work fast – alla prima, respond quickly and directly to the natural and multi-dimensional scene, and work within a relatively narrow time frame.
This workshop prepares you in every way for your plein air painting adventure, showing you a clear painting method to follow, the most effective palettes to use, preparatory studies that can be done in advance, and knowing what materials and equipment to bring on your field trip.
