What you will learn
In this video lesson, instructor Bill Perkins will give you an introduction to en plein air painting, or "painting in open air." Bill will begin by going over some unique challenges you will encounter with plein air painting, such as choosing your intention for your piece, finding the right frame, and how to work with changing light conditions. You will learn how to create a matrix of your painting as well as how to group values and identify contrast and textures within the scenery. Finally, Bill will illustrate these concepts in a demonstration oil painting of a harbor scene.
