En plein air

The French called it ‘En plein air’ or as we say ‘in the Open Air’ which is also called peinture sur le motif ‘painting on the ground’ in French. Loved those French terms all I know is that I allways wanted to experience it… I have tried it few times before and found it much better to paint as you can see all the ‘Fiftey Shades of Grey’… did not try to bring sex into the sunbject, but it is true, you can see many more colours that a photograph some time hide. Today we spent couple of hours in ‘Sevenoaks Wildfowl Reserve’ (you must visit, it is a beautiful place)… I add a couple of sketches, Enjoy
