Road From the Winery En Plein Air with Watercolor and Ink

En plein air is a French term that means painting “in the open air”.


Going outdoors away from my regular routine is so therapeutic! Fresh air and beautiful surroundings clears my mind of concerns, and Painting outdoors on location gives me a chance to use a different area of my brain. This area is in Southern California wine country where I frequently meet another artist friend En Plein Air to paint.
