This 38 min documentary tells the story of plein air painting. It shows how it was used in the 19th century to bring the beauty of nature closer to people who were unable to travel. Some of the art may even be called conservationist as it preserved views to posterity which may have been lost forever since.
The beautiful scenery displayed in films, photos and paintings as well as the amazing number of artists painting en plein air make this film well worth watching. It may inspire you to try painting outdoors yourself.
You can always jump forward if you haven´t got the time to watch all of the video. You can also speed up the playback speed.
Hope you like my choice of the day.
