Tricia Lowrey Lippert En Plein Air Painting

Plein Air Painting is the art of painting in nature. It has been practiced since the 17th century but became popular in the 19th century through the Barbizon Painters and the French Impressionists. Today, Plein Air Painting has become the largest art movement in the United States as well as a lot of other countries.

I have been painting en plein air for over 40 years. It is a wonderful way to connect with nature and to be creative at the same time. As well, plein air painting teaches the artist to see and make decisions quickly and decisively. Because of the movement of time and light, the painter is forced to simplify composition, design, color, and values. This improves the artist’s ability and enhances their studio painting.

In this class we will create thumbnail sketches to help us with composition before laying out a painting. We will go “into the field” together and paint. I will do some demos to illustrate how I layout a painting. We will practice color mixing, brushstrokes, and some other tools that can create texture in your painting. I will point out rhythms and patterns as I see them in nature that can be used to create interesting compositions. We will also discuss perspective, story, and “land snorkeling.”

I have found that Plein Air Painting has deepened my appreciation for the earth and the importance of protecting the wild lands. Depending on the medium you choose to work in, it is the perfect traveling companion.

Painting in nature is an awesome and humbling experience. Not every piece will be a masterpiece. There will be times when you fight with the elements and bugs, but in the end, I think you will find it is very enriching. I hope you will join me in this adventure.
