Plein Air Painting
En plein air, or plein air painting, is a phrase borrowed from the French equivalent meaning "open (in full) air". It is particularly used to describe the act of painting outdoors, also called French: peinture sur le motif ("painting of the object(s) or what the eye actually sees"), where a painter reproduces the actual visual conditions seen at the time of the painting.
We have a host of Plein Air painters scattered all throughout the festival demonstrating and painting the hundreds of beautiful location in the festival and throughout downtown.
