The phrase "Plein Air" is a French term which means the act of painting outdoors. I prefer acrylics because of their water clean up, fast drying time and ease of use. Other choices are watercolor, gouache, ink, charcoal, pastel and sometimes a mix of several together. Acrylic Plein Air offers a whole different approach and fresh modern look to outdoor on the spot painting.
