Synopsis: Plein-air painting is the art of painting out-of-doors, on site, and completing the work at one sitting. In this lively guide, acclaimed artist, author, and instructor Cathy Johnson provides a friendly introduction to all facets of plein-air painting—from selecting and using basic materials (including pencils, pastels, watercolors, acrylics, brushes, and papers) to weathering outdoor conditions and dealing with the challenges of capturing ever-changing light. Richly illustrated with studies, sketches, and paintings by the author and others, this book will inspire and guide beginners and accomplished artists alike in this time-honored pastime.

From the Inside Flap: Plein-air painting -- the art of painting outdoors, on-site, and completing the work in one sitting -- became famous with the advent of Impressionism in France in the 1870s. It's still a fresh and spontaneous way to capture the moment -- and an ideal approach for anyone whose appreciation of nature's beauty and variety prompts an impulse to respond with brush, pen, or pencil.

In this lively, easygoing guide, prize-winning artist, author, and instructor Cathy Johnson provides a friendly introduction to all facets of plein-air painting -- from selecting and using basic materials (including pencils, pastels, watercolors, acrylics, brushes, and papers) to weathering outdoor conditions and dealing with the challenges of capturing ever-changing light.

Richly illustrated with delightful studies, sketches, and paintings by the author and others, this book will inspire and guide beginners and accomplished artists alike in the delightful pastime of painting out where the sun touches your face, the wind ruffles your hair (and your paper!), and birdsong provides the background music.
