What is Plein Air? "En plein air" is a French term that means "the open air", and refers to the act of painting outdoors. The goal of this technique is to capture the essence of a landscape or subject, with focus on natural light, movement, and color. Plein air painting was practiced by artists Claude Monet, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Paul Cezanne, Camille Pissarro, and Vincent van Gogh.
