Drawing and Painting on Location : A Guide to En Plein-Air, Paperback Book

Drawing and Painting on Location : A Guide to En Plein-Air Paperback


Working en plein-air is a French term that means literally 'in the open air' and, although artists have been doing just that for centuries, the concept is experiencing a resurgence today. Sketchers and painters alike are leaving their studios and heading out into the open air. This book encourages you to join them. Full of in-depth advice and practical instruction, it explains how to make the most of painting outside and how to capture the very essence of a scene with a far greater authenticity than can be achieved when working from a second-hand image. Covers an array of mediums including pencils, pastels, pens, watercolours, oils and acrylics.
